Kishanganj(Bihar), Oct 18 : After Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday  accused the Nitish Kumar government of not properly utilising Central funds.

"The Centre has provided crores and crores of rupees to the state under various centrally-sponsored schemes... but it is unfortunate that there are reports of corruption," Gandhi told an election rally here.

Criticising the development claim of Nitish Kumar, she said, "We don't know what happened to the funds the Centre provided to the state" and asked the people as to how many hours they received electricity and what happened to the money earmarked for education and health sectors.PTI
