The BJP accused the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre of treating Jharkhand as a "milch cow" and cited yesterday's Cabinet reshuffle that left Jharkhand unrepresented in the Union council of ministers.
"Leaving Jharkhand unrepresented in the Central cabinet shows how the Centre gives importance to the state. It has always treated Jharkhand as a milch cow, exploiting its mineral resources," BJP's state unit president Dineshanand Goswami alleged.
"Subodh Kant Sahay's exit was inevitable and he deserved to be out of the Cabinet. But leaving out the state unrepresented in the Union Cabinet is injustice," he said.
