Bhopal, Feb 20 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh's main opposition Congress is on the verge of issuing a chargesheet to ''expose'' the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party regime's alleged reneging on promises, corruption, deteriorating law and order and exploitation of farmers.
''The chargesheet will serve as a medium for telling the masses that the BJP cheated them by showing brightly-coloured dreams during the 2003 assembly elections,'' Congress General Secretary and Madhya Pradesh incharge V Narayanasamy told reporters here today.
Among those present were Congress state President Suresh Pachouri and Secretary Jatin Prasad. Detailed guidelines for the chargesheet's issuance were provided at a meeting of district and town Congress committee presidents.
''The Congress is united in Madhya Pradesh and has become more active and enthusiastic after Mr Pachouri assumed his post and MLA Ajay Singh was given the responsibility of the poll campaign committee. The Lokayukta is probing the chief minister and seven ministers accused of corruption,'' said Mr Narayanasamy.
He alleged that an ''endless'' list of scams included the Simhasth scam, pension, scam, land scam, Dental and Medical Admission Test scam, dumper scam and cycle scam.
''Funds disbursed for central schemes including the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, are succumbing to corruption.
Money is being withdrawn on the basis of fake muster rolls while the needy are vexed over unemployment,'' said Mr Narayanasamy.
The Congress leader alleged misuse of finances under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, Midday Meal Scheme, Bharat Nirman Yojana, Rural Electrification and some other central schemes.
''We demand that the Centre probe expenditure under the schemes.
The state government's development claims are hollow. The public is being cheated in the name of investment meets. On the national scale, Madhya Pradesh has slid from eighth to 15th place vis-a-vis investment,'' he added.
Denouncing the Kisan mahapanchayat as an electoral ploy, Mr Narayanasamy added that farmers were vexed over inflated power bills despite outages besides paucity of fertiliser and seed.
