Nalhati(Bengal): Launching a scathing attack on the Left Front in West Bengal for its 34-year of misrule,Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Wednesday said the state government could not even provide Below Poverty Line (BPL) card to the needy.

The Congress president, who was here to campaign for Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee's son Abhijit Mukherjee said, "Thousand crores of rupees had been given to the state for state's development but it has not brought forth any concrete result so far."

She came down heavily on the Opposition’s charge of corruption and said, “Laws to fight against corruption were introduced only in Congress rule. Instead of giving advice to the party, the Opposition should fight against it.”

“The People of Bengal are not even getting pure drinking water. Thus they should not let the opportunity slip from their hands and it is a right time to bring a change in the state.Congress President added."
