The Congress blamed BJP for Jharkhand’s “non-development”. The party said if the BJP had utilised central funds properly the state would have developed.
Former Union Minister and Congress leader Deepa Dasmunshi said in Ranchi today that the BJP had ruled Jharkhand for nine years and the previous UPA government at the Centre had sent funds for several welfare projects but the BJP government failed to utilise them and as a result the funds were surrendered.
In their election campaigns, BJP leaders had blamed the Congress for Jharkhand’s non-development and for its support to former Chief Minister Madhu Koda that led to “corruption” in the state.
“When Jharkhand was created, only two districts were affected by the Maoists and now it’s all over the state. Why? Because of non-development,” added Dasmunshi, who is in Jharkhand to campaign for the third phase polling.
