BJP slams Cong remarks on malnutrition report

New Delhi: Oct 6, 2013 DHNS

 The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday hit out at the Congress for allegedly indulging in “falsehood” over the issue of malnutrition in Gujarat, which was highlighted in a report by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG).

Senior party leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said the state's malnutrition rate had come down from 74 per cent to 25 per cent, which is an “exemplary” record when compared with the situation in Congress-ruled states.

“Gujarat's record is exemplary, outstanding, inclusive, and for the so-called equity-conscious government of (Prime Minister) Manmohan Singh and (Congress president) Sonia Gandhi, the record of Congress governments (in states) is distressing and totally unsatisfactory,” he said.
