Post Centre deliberately delaying Ardh Kumbh funds: Cong

The Congress has questioned the delay by the Central government in the allocation of funds for Ardh Kumbh that is less than three months away.
Congress state spokesperson Anshul Shri Kunj today sought answer from state BJP leaders Ajay Bhatt, Leader of Opposition in the state Assembly, and Teerath Singh Rawat, state BJP president, on delay in allocation of the budget for the Ardh Kumbh fair.
Kunj said while the two BJP leaders were vociferous in raising doubts over Chief Minister Harish Rawat-led state government working, they were silent and avoid direct questions on the Ardh Kumbh budget delay.
“Both Bhatt and Teerath leave no stone unturned to condemn the state government’s working to create doubt in the mind of voters. But, when the Ardh Kumbh issue comes, they have no answer as to why the Central government is releasing the the requisite funds though the fair is less than three months away. This seems to be a deliberate attempt to hamper the Ardh Kumbh preparations and then later to gain mileage during the 2017 Assembly election by laying blame on the state government,” said Shri Kunj.
Cornering the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi in particular, Anshul alleged that the clean Ganga issue was splashed during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections to get political mileage and now the BJP had majority in the Lok Sabha, it had put the Ganga issue on backfoot.
He said the Namami Gange project was started by the Central government to clean the Ganga, but 16 months had passed and still no major visible work on the ground level to clean the Ganga had started.
Defending Chief Minister Harish Rawat over liquor policy, Anshul said the new excise policy had been carved to keep liquor mafia away from the liquor sale, but the BJP was condemning the policy as it had failed to make any firm policy during its tenure.
