Accusing Mayawati of looting funds meant for welfare schemes, Congress (I) General Secretary Rahul Gandhi said her government swindled money which centre had sent for the poor in UP. Instead of the money reaching the poor, it disappeared in the way, Rahul Gandhi said while campaigning for the ongoing Assembly elections. Poor people got nothing while the corrupt ministers of Mayawati government filled their pockets, he further said. MGNREGA – a national employment scheme – a flagship program of Congress (I) UPA government is meant to alleviate poverty by generating employment opportunities in rural areas. This scheme is tremendous success in Congress (I) ruled states but Mayawati government deprived its benefits to the poor. Highlighting that this position will not change unless BSP is voted out, Rahul Gandhi urged the people this time to vote for Congress (I). He assured that a government of the poor by Congress (I) will ensure that the benefits of the welfare scheme reach the poor.
