BJP national vice-president Pyarelal Khandelwal on Friday launched broadside against the Congress government in Nagaland accusing the SC Jamir regime of "misutilising" central funds meant for development of the state.
The senior BJP also attacked the media of spreading
"misinformation" in the state and said certain media organisations were "misusing" the media in favour of some political parties or candidates in the run-up to the February 26 assembly elections.
Talking to newsmen here after campaigning for the party in different districts and assembly segments, Khandelwal said the Congress government, besides "misutilising" funds released under centrally-sponsored schemes, misused Indian reserve battalion during the electioneering process.
Terming the ruling Congress as "most frustrated", Khandelwal alleged the Jamir government was using NSCN (K) cadres to "threaten" the opposition parties in the state.
The BJP leader exuded confidence that democratic alliance of Nagaland, formed with Nagaland people's front and others last month, would form the next government in the state.
