Implement Central Schemes Properly or Will Cut Financial Aid: Centre to Akhilesh

Ballia (UP): Union Power Minister Piyush Goyal on Wednesday warned the Akhilesh Yadav-led state government that it would not receive any "financial help" in the future from the Centre if it doesn't follow transparency while implementing central schemes.

"As far as electrification is concerned, the state's position is bad. If the state government does not put board highlighting details of the work on websites, and transparency is not followed, the Centre will stop financial help to the state," Goyal said while addressing the audience at a programme here.

The minister said only 5 lakh houses were electrified as against the proposed target of 10 lakh under the 11th five-year plan.

He said under the 12th five-year plan, too, the state government managed to electrify only 1.25 lakh houses against the proposed target of 32 lakh.

"The state government is claiming that 4.97 lakh houses have been covered," Goyal remarked.

He said the state government received Rs 12.707 crore for rural and urban electrification schemes before the BJP-led NDA government came to power, but this amount was not utilised.

Later, talking to reporters, Goyal termed Rahul Gandhi "dalali" remark as "unfortunate" and, in an apparent reference to Pakistan, said "his statement has been hailed in an enemy country”.

"From coal allocation to other cases, the Congress hand is infamous for 'dalali'. People of the country will give a befitting reply to the Congress for the childish statements," he said.

"How can a country trust a leader, who cannot save his 'khat' (cot)," he asked, referring to a recent Rahul Gandhi rally in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh, which ended in a mad rush by the crowd to grab the cots they had been provided to sit on.
