In the event of Third Front coming to power after the Lok Sabha polls, there would be no dearth of funds for Uttar Pradesh, he said at a function to dedicate the lower Rohini project in Madavara block in Lalitpur to people.
      
"The Congress-led UPA government is not providing the state its share of funds due to which a number of development projects have been adversely hit," said Yadav.
        
Stressing on conservation of rain water for providing irrigation facilities in this water-scarcity hit area of Bundelkhand, he said 15 new dams would be constructed in the region for the benefit of farmers.
    
Shivpal said that the previous Samajwadi Party government had started construction of dams but the subsequent Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) regime did not pay any heed to it.
    
The construction of dams was underway and once these were completed, almost 40 percent land in Bundelkhand region would get irrigation facility, he said.
