The central government has allocated funds to states according to mutually agreed formula for "economic justice", the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said on Tuesday in a counter to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's charge of discrimination against non-Congress ruled states.

"The Centre has allocated funds to states according to mutually agreed formula for 'economic justice'," the PMO said on Twitter.

"Most developing states have improved their GDP growth during the last 5 Year Plan. States that used to grow slowly in earlier periods have done much better," it said.

While addressing a meeting of entrepreneurs in Kolkata on Tuesday, Modi accused the UPA government of discriminating against non-Congress ruled states.

"Defying the constitution, the UPA government has been constantly discriminating between states ruled by the parties in the UPA coalition and those run by non-UPA parties," Modi said.
