New Delhi: Chief Ministers of Congress-ruled states on Saturday criticised Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for attacking the Centre and its policies at the National Development Council (NDC) meeting here saying he should not have used it as a political platform.

"The Gujarat Chief Minister should not have said such things. The NDC should not be used as a political platform," Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said.

Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said Modi should have realised that he was "taking part in the NDC meeting and not in an election rally in Gujarat."

Speaking at the NDC meet earlier in the day, the Gujarat Chief Minister said the Centre was making attempts to "tinker" with the country's federal structure, particularly in the implementation of development schemes.

Modi also highlighted "widespread disenchantment" among people who were becoming "increasingly impatient" with growing corruption.

"It is with a sense of great anguish and deep regret that I wish to draw the attention of this august body to attempts being made increasingly by the Central government to tinker with the federal structure mandated by the Constitution," he told the meeting here.
