Patna: Flaying the NDA government for
making `tall claim` of development and welfare activities
during its rule, the Congress today claimed public money was
being plundered by the politician-bureaucrat nexus and being
invested in real estates across the state capital.

"Our party would like to ask the NDA government the
reasons behind the sudden spurt in the real estate price in
past few years other than the fact that the politicians and
bureaucrats have heavily invested their ill-gotten wealth in
land, building and apartments," newly appointed Bihar Pradesh
Congress Committee (BPCC) President Chaudhary Mehboob Ali
Kaiser told reporters at his maiden press conference here.

Kaiser alleged that there was massive corruption in
the implementation of the central flagship programmes like
MNREGA, SSA and others and claimed that there has been no
improvement in the quality of life of poor people.

The BPCC President singled out the Chief Minister for
his alleged involvement in the excise scam, which he said, was
carried out by the Chief Minister`s office with the latter`s
consent and demanded a CBI probe in the matter.
