Raipur: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday alleged that the Modi government has misused funds of MGNREGA scheme.
Addressing a gathering at an election meeting at Pakhanjore in Kanker district, Gandhi said that during its tenure the UPA government had approved Rs 35,000 crore for MGNREGA scheme.
