New Delhi, Sep 26 (PTI) The BJP on Tuesday released a 104-page charge sheet against the Congress government in poll-bound Chhattisgarh, alleging large-scale corruption, nepotism, scams and encouragement to naxalites by the Bhupesh Baghel dispensation.

The Congress government failed to fulfil a total 316 promises the party and its former president Rahul Gandhi made on various occasions including during the last assembly polls, BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra alleged while releasing the charge sheet at a press conference at the party headquarters here.

Raising the issue of law and order in the state, Patra alleged mafia and criminals have been given a free hand in the state. "The Congress government has ignored more than 5,900 rape cases. This is the real face of the Congress in Chhattisgarh." On the issue of corruption and the Congress' performance, Patra claimed Gandhi had promised a "100 percent ban'" on the sale of liquor in Chhattisgarh but the state witnessed a "liquor scam" worth over Rs 2,000 crore under the Baghel government.
