Agartala, Feb 12 (IANS) CPI-M leaders in Tripura Tuesday termed as falsehood Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi's tirade against the Left government in the state.

"If Left Front cadres have siphoned off central funds and no development had taken place, why did the central government give 28 awards to the Tripura government over two years?" asked Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) state secretary Bijan Dhar.

"The scam-tainted UPA (United Progressive Alliance) government leaders are pointing fingers at a state which is, according to the central leaders and officials themselves, becoming a model state," Dhar told the media.

CPI-M leader Gautam Das accused the Congress of giving false promises to the electorate.

Other CPI-M leaders hit out at the Congress for its alliance with the Indigenous Nationalist Party of Tripura (INPT), which they described as "a political force and mask of the outlawed extremists".

Gandhi, in his campaign speeches in Tripura Monday and Tuesday, alleged that all the money allocated for various schemes were "stolen" by the CPI-M cadres.
