Moradabad: Congress has criticised the Mayawati government in Uttar Pradesh for allegedly misusing grants from the Central government and blamed it for rising crime and corruption in the state.

Addressing a public meeting here last night during the Congress' Sandesh Yatra, senior leaders Digvijay Singh and Shri Prakash Jaiswal said the ruling BSP government is a government of criminals.

"We are visiting rural and backward areas and demonstrating the negative aspects of the BSP government in the state. The response is very positive," Singh said.

He said the state government is responsible for rising crime and corruption in the state and accused it of misusing grants from the Central government.

On why the Congress failed to form a government in Uttar Pradesh in the last two decades, Singh said there was "lack of interaction" due to which people of the state were unaware of Congress policies.

Jaiswal said: "We are meeting those tortured by the Mayawati government and are assuring them that Congress is alive and there is no need to be afraid. People are satisfied and the result of the 2012 State Assembly elections will prove this."

Congress MP from Moradabad Mohammad Azharuddin spoke about the programmes and achievements of the Sandesh Yatra.
