pressbrief.in On the second day of his UP tour Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi took on the Mayawati- led BSP Government in the state. Addressing a Congress workers' meet at Nanpara, Rahul Gandhi argued that the UP Government has been looting the Central welfare funds meant for the poor. Questioning Mayawati's ambiguous stand vis-à-vis MGNREGA Rahul Gandhi wondered, "UP Chief Minister has been saying that MGNREGA is not a useful scheme for the state. But yesterday, she claimed that she never said that MGNREGA is of no use. However, in October 2007 Mayawati during a rally in Lucknow had said that state of Uttar Pradesh will not be benefitted from the scheme. You can check the newspaper records for that. In my opinion Mayawati is wrong. Every poor person in this country will benefit from this employment guarantee scheme. "
