GUWAHATI, June 19 � The BJP on Tuesday accused the Tarun Gogoi government of misappropriating around Rs 5,000 crore out of the total of Rs 9,000 crore which the State got under the 2011-12 financial year from the Planning Commission and demanded a White Paper in this connection.
BJP national vice president Bijoya Chakravorty today alleged that the ruling Congress has indulged in rampant corruption and said that Tarun Gogoi has a responsibility to inform the public how the money was spent.
On the other hand, Chakravorty said that the Congress has failed in every department and during its tenure, the condition of women and children has become more pathetic. She pointed out that crime against women has been increasing and the government has failed to ensure security to women.
The senior BJP leader also slammed the government for allegedly failing to provide nutrition to children and mentioned that 37 per cent of children in the State were malnourished.
Criticizing Tarun Gogoi�s pro-Bangladeshi stand, Chakravorty said that it was very unfortunate the Bangladeshis were everywhere now, occupying land right under the nose of the authorities.
