Unnao (UP): Congress President Sonia Gandhi
today said that her party is contesting the Uttar Pradesh
Assembly elections for forming a government and not for
striking a coalition with any party.

Recalling that the UPA-I had given MNREGS and gave Rs 20
thousand crores for it, Gandhi said that people of the state
would have to take account of how much of it reached them and
how much was looted by the corrupt.

The Congress president said that more than Rs one lakh
crore have been given to the state for NRHM, JNNURM, Rajiv
Gandhi rural electrification schemes and education for all
among others.

Food security bill has been presented in the Parliament
to ensure that no one goes hungry, she said.

Addressing the meeting, party general secretary Digvijay
Singh said that the fight is between Cognress and SP in the UP
polls and lashed out at Mulayam Singh Yadav for taking the
support of fundamentalists, both muslim and hindu, at
different points of time.

"Yadav got Kalyan Singh who has been held guilty by the
Supreme Court on his cycle and sent Sakhsi Maharaj, accused of
demolishing Babri Mosque to the Rajya Sabha", he said adding
that now he has taking Imam Bukhari along with him.

Singh exhorted the people to make a "mazboot government
and not a majboor (helpless) one and said that like they
changed the govenrment in 207 they should do the same in
2012. He said that BSP was out of the race.

"Congress is not contesting these elections to forge a
coalition with any party but for forming its government",
Gandhi said at an election meeting in Chamrauli area this
afternoon.

"Congress would establish a relationship of trust with
the people and would stand by them in the good and bad times",
he said.

While stating that there was no difference between the
BJP, BSP and Samajwadi Party, Gandhi said all these parties
have entered into alliances with each other at different times
and ruined the state by distributing chairs (posts) to serve
their vested interests.

The Congress president lamented that for the past 20 to
22 years the governments taking over the reins had betrayed
the people and instead of developing the state have dragged it
behind.

"There had been the rule of either the criminals or
corrupt", she said.

Referring to the various welfare schemes of the UPA
government like the loan waiver for farmers and package for
weavers, she said that had it not happened things would have
been worse.
