Congress president Sonia Gandhi is "dissatisfied and disappointed" with the slow progress of the central government's public welfare schemes in her Uttar Pradesh constituency Rae Bareli, a party spokesperson said on Saturday.

Gandhi, who arrived here Friday, is on a two-day tour of her constituency to review the status of developmental schemes.

"Sonia-ji is thoroughly dissatisfied over the manner in which the central government-sponsored schemes are being carried out in her constituency," Akhilesh Pratap Singh, state Congress spokesperson, told reporters here.

"The feedback which Sonia-ji received on Friday, the first day of her tour, left her highly disappointed. She even pulled up a number of district officials and directed them to meet her with files related to projects being carried out at a tardy pace," he said.

According to party officials, Gandhi was unhappy as she came across anomalies in the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, Mid-Day Meal scheme and the Rajiv Gandhi Gramin Vidyutkaran Yojana in a number of villages, including Khanpur, Satwakhera, Barwala.

On Saturday, the Congress president is to chair a meeting of the district vigilance and monitoring committee and will also meet party workers and delegations, party sources said.
