Panaji, July 20 (IANS) The BJP should stop collecting donations for Uttarakhand relief work and first explain what happened to the "crores of rupees" taken in the name of building the Ram Janmabhoomi temple in Ayodhya decades ago, the NCP demanded Saturday.
"The BJP should first submit accounts of how much money was collected during the Ram Janmabhoomi issue days to build a temple at Ayodhya and what has happened to it?" Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) spokesperson Trajano D'Mello told a press conference Saturday.
"No one knows where the donation money is going or where and how it is going to be utilised," he added, accusing the BJP-led coalition government of ignoring the destruction caused by a flood in a Goan village of Cuncolim some weeks back.
"First our own villagers should be provided relief before running off to spend money for other states. No one came to the rescue of Cuncolim residents after floods in Goa caused damage there," Trajano said.
