Orai: Coming down heavily on the Congress, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and BSP supremo Mayawati on Saturday alleged the maximum black money in foreign banks was that of Congress leaders.

Addressing an election meeting here, she dared Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her party's general secretary Rahul Gandhi to make the names of those having accounts in the foreign banks public.

“Both did nothing to bring back the black money stashed abroad”, Mayawati said.

She alleged several scams had taken place at the Centre and many scamsters were still in the Congress party.

 Holding Congress responsible for backwardness of UP, Mayawati wondered how that party could change the face of the state in five years when it had nothing during its long rule at the Centre.

 Most of the time, it was the Nehru-Gandhi family which had ruled the country
, she said adding "when they could not do anything during this period, how can they develop the state in five years."

Listing achievements of her government, Mayawati accused the Union government of not providing assistance for welfare and development schemes pertaining to the state.

Criticising the Samajwadi Party, she alleged “goonda’’ elements had ruled the roost when the former was in power in the state.

Targeting the BJP, she said it did nothing concrete to bring back the black money when it was in power.
