New Delhi: The projects launched by the Centre are likely to play an important role in the ongoing battle between the Congress and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) before the UP 2012 polls.

The youth wing of the Congress, National Youth Congress has now questioned BSP supremo Mayawati’s role in the National Rural Health Mission (NRHM) scam that has engulfed the state government since past few months. The youth Congress has asked Mayawati for an explanation on the misuse of the massive amount to the tune of several thousand crores under the project.

The youth wing has decided to visit maximum possible villages in the state to talk directly to the people and make them aware of the funds allotted by the Centre for the health sector and how it was misused by the BSP government.

National Youth Congress in a statement on Friday maintained, “Now the High Court has also ordered CBI inquiry into the NRHM scam. This has proved that the corruption issues raised by Congress in the state were genuine. General Secretary Rahul Gandhi had himself raised this issue. The time has come when Mayawati government needs to answer the questions.”
