Rahul Gandhi flays UP CM Yogi for slashing education outlay in budget
New Delhi: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday took a dig at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for slashing the budgetary allocation for education in the state's budget and failing to fulfil its promises.
"Great move CM Yogi - next you can save some more money by closing all the hospitals," Gandhi said on Twitter attaching a news report.
The report said that education funds were slashed in the UP budget and there was no mention of the free laptops in the budget which were promised by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Earlier on July 11, Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government presented Rs 3,84,659 crore tax-free deficit budget for the year 2017-18, which is ten per cent more than the last year.
