NEW DELHI — With less than six months left in the Lok Sabha elections, a research by Caravan Daily reveals that a huge sum of Rs 272 crore of the MP Local Area Development Funds is lying unspent in the three BJP-ruled states that are going to Assembly polls in a few weeks from now.

Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh have together Rs 271.72 crore lying unspent, shows the Lok Sabha website that records sanction, spending and unspent amount of Members of Lok Sabha. Assembly elections will be held here on 7th Dec.

Rajasthan which elected BJP candidates on all 25 Lok Sabha seats in May 2014, has unspent sum of Rs 119.96 crore. In the by-polls in February this year, BJP lost Ajmer and Alwar to Congress.

It is followed by Madhya Pradesh with unspent amount of Rs 112.68 crore. In the 2014 elections, BJP had won 26 out of 29 Lok Sabha seats. The state is going to Assembly polls on 28th Nov.

Chhattisgarh, which has only 11 Lok Sabha seats, has unspent sum of Rs 39.08 crore. In the Narendra Modi wave here too, BJP had won 10 seats. Two-phase Assembly polls will be held here on 12th and 20th Nov.
