Modi Govt discriminating against non-BJP ruled states: HP Minister

Shimla, Feb 22 (UNI) The Revenue Minister of Himachal Pradesh Jagat Singh Negi today accused the Narendra Modi Government of discriminating against the non-BJP ruled states by depriving them of their dues claims and in the devolution of funds.
Participating in the Budget discussion Negi said that right from 2014 onwards Himachal Pradesh has been slipping into economic distress as the Narendra Modi government cut down the due share of the state under article 280 of the Indian Constitution.
He said that under Article 280 there is the provision of the Planning Commission. However, it was abolished by the Modi government, which created a "puppet organisation "Niti Ayog in place of the Planning Commission and it was not releasing funds to the state now.
