Patna, Feb 2 (ANI): Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi, who is on a two-day visit to Bihar to boost National Student' Union of India and Youth Congress membership ahead of assembly elections, has said Bihar needs transformation for development.

Gandhi said, "Funds made available to the Bihar government is not properly utilized."

"We can send money, but cannot implement schemes. Funds do not reach the schools of the villages," added Gandhi.

Gandhi, who appeared to be in full election mood said, "Nobody did as much for Dalits as Indira Gandhi did in the last 60 years."

Gandhi's prime focus appears to woo the 'annoyed' minority community who disowned the grand old party after the Bhagalpur riots and the youths who form a major percentage of the state voters.

The Congress has had a dry run in the state for the last 21 years since the month-long Bhagalpur riots of 1989 mowed down nearly a thousand people in what was termed as one of the worst communal riots in the country. (ANI)
