Raipur, Nov 16 (UNI) Haryana Chief Minister Bhupendra Singh Hooda today said development of Chhattisgarh could be brought about only if the Congress comes into power in the state.
''The condition of the state is miserable and no development could be seen anywhere even though it possessed abundant mineral reserves,'' he said.
Mr Hooda, while addressing a press conference here, said Chhattisgarh had the potential to become Haryana, which was the number one state of the country, only if Congress was voted to power.
''The BJP government has done nothing except indulging in corruption and minting money in the past five years,'' he alleged.
The Haryana Chief Minister, who was here to canvass votes for the Congress for the second phase of polling, scheduled to take place on November 20 in the assembly elections, said the Raman Singh government had failed to nail the naxalite activites while the bureaucracy was out of their control.
Giving tips for becoming the top state of the country, Mr Hooda said honest utilisation of central funds was one of the reason for the achievement.
He even claimed that Haryana was the largest grower of wheat in the country, while the gross income of individuals of his state was the highest.
