Bhopal: Congress on Saturday alleged "rampant corruption" in execution of Centre-sponsored welfare schemes in BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh and asked party workers to expose it to bring the party back to power in the state.

"Rampant corruption is taking place under BJP rule in Madhya Pradesh in implementation of Centrally-sponsored welfare schemes and I have asked the partymen to tour the villages to expose it," AICC secretary V Hanumantha Rao recently apoointed second in-charge of the party's affairs in the state, told reporters after addressing party workers here.

Accusing BJP of misusing central funds meant for the welfare of common people, Rao said the state government has not fulfilled the promises it had made to people, especially farmers at the time of elections.

He alleged that the the funds allocated for the development of Naxal areas in Chhattisgarh are being "pocketed" by BJP workers.

Hailing recent appointments of Union Minister Kantilal Bhuria, a tribal, as the state unit president and of Ajay Singh as the Leader of Opposition, Rao said they will benefit the party in 2013 Assembly polls.

On the defeat of Congress candidate in the recently-concluded Jabera bypoll, he alleged that the BJP won the election by resorting to unfair means.

To a question, Rao said the new state Congress Committee representing all sections of the society will be announced soon.
