Khariar (Odisha): Refuting Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik's allegations of Centre's negligence towards the state, Congress president Sonia Gandhi today accused BJD government of rampant corruption and inefficiency, besides inability to contain rising crimes against women.  


“UPA government has given thousands of crores of rupees for the development of Odisha. If one compares the amount of central funding to Odisha during the previous NDA regime in which the BJD was a part and the present UPA rule, there will be no confusion,” she told her first poll rally here in poverty stricken Nuapada district.  

Funds released for Odisha during UPA rule was much higher than during the NDA regime, she said adding “Comparison shows there was zameen-asman farak (hell and heaven difference).”
