Gujarat gripe about 'stepmom'

Business Standard  |  New Delhi 

Vijay Rupani, minister of water supply in Gujarat, has accused the Modi government of not releasing enough funds for the state to enable proper water management. Gujarat has got brilliant results using cost-saving techniques such as e-tender, water audit and energy audit, but the central government is not releasing enough funds for the state, he alleged. Ironically, Modi, as chief minister of Gujarat, had accused the then United Progressive Alliance government at the Centre of step-motherly treatment on various issues including releasing funds for the state.
