Centre not giving funds to UP: SP

 The Samajwadi Party on Thursday accused the Centre of not releasing funds due to Uttar Pradesh.

 
"UP chief minister, chief secretary and other ministers have written to the Central government several times. The contribution that Centre should give to UP is not being given. There is partiality," party leader Ramgopal Yadav said in the Rajya Sabha.
 
He said the money not being includes for flood mitigation, compensation for crop destroyed by hail, minority, and scheduled caste scholarships, and funds for making roads.
 
"Had it been their own government, they would have given the money, unless they assure they will disperse the money in next few days, we will not allow the house to function," Yadav said.
 
Soon after that, SP members trooped near the chairman's podium.
 
Janata Dal-United (JDU) leader Sharad Yadav said similar treatment was being given to Bihar.
 
"Centre is not implementing crop insurance scheme in BIhar," Ali Anwar Ansari of JD-U said.
