Mayawati, who blamed Congress government of playing politics over the death of deputy Chief Medical Officer YS Sachan, said that country witnessed several corruption during Congress' rule.

The UP government has decided to implement a scheme, under which, woman head of poor family gets Rs 400 per month, she said.
