New Delhi, May 7: At a time when the Narendra Modi-led NDA government is asking its MPs to be united to counter opposition's charge a BJP MP has alleged that the policies and schemes of the Central government were not being implemented on the ground.

This could bring an embarassment to the Narendra Modi Government which is facing stiff criticism from an united opposition to stall its ambitious legislations in the Parliament.

No development work on ground: BJP MP

Warning the party brass of 'consequences' Bharat Singh, party MP from Ballia in Uttar Pradesh, claimed that the policies and schemes of the Central government were not being implemented on the ground and ministers were not responding adequately to their complaints.

Singh's statement is believed to have created a flutter at a meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Party when he raised the issue in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who made no observations.

Sources said the MP complained that schemes announced by the NDA government were not being implemented in the state and the BJP may have to face the consequences in elections.

Singh also reportedly complained against Union Ministers about their "inadequate" and "delayed" response when told about schemes not being implemented.

He also accused the ministers of adopting a "casual" attitude. Uttar Pradesh is ruled by Samajwadi Party and BJP is seeking to come to power in the state after doing well in the Lok Sabha polls.

BJP won as many as 71 Parliamentary seats in Uttar Pradesh besides two by its ally Apna Dal, out of a total of 80 seats in the state.
Sources said the MP, a backbencher, was encouraged to speak out by some MPs who handed him over a microphone so that others can hear.

However, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu, who was conducting the meeting, announced that the meeting was over as MPs had to attend another meeting.

This has given an opportunity to the opposition parties to take a dig at the Modi government.
