Dehra Dun: BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi on Saturday accused Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of misleading the people of Uttarakhand by saying baseless things during his election tour of the state.

He was referring to Singh's charge during a poll rally at Rudrapur yesterday that the state BJP government had failed to sincerely implement central schemes and developmental activities only happened during the Congress rule.

"This statement of the Prime Minister is baseless," Joshi told reporters after addressing an election rally in Mussoorie.

A total revenue amount of Rs 4,516 crore was generated under the BJP rule against Rs 2,128 crore during the Congress regime, he said.
