Funds not reaching poor in Mayawati land: Sonia

Lucknow, Feb 1 (IANS) Slamming the Mayawati government for
"inefficient implementation of centrally funded developmental
programmes", Congress president Sonia Gandhi began her campaign for
the Uttar Pradesh polls Wednesday.

Speaking at a rally in Gonda town, Gandhi said though the UPA
government provided more than Rs.1 lakh crore in developmental funds
to Uttar Pradesh in recent years, it had not reached the poor because
of an "inept" state administration.

Asking people to vote the Congress to power in the state, Gandhi said:
"Then we will have a government of the common people and the poor."

Congress has been out of power in Uttar Pradesh since 1989. The state
will see seven-phased polls from Feb 8 to March 3. Votes will be
counted March 6.
