"Due to drought, the situation of Bundelkhand is not good but Centre has turned a blind eye towards it. It did nothing for helping poor," he told a gathering in Uttar Pradesh.
Noting that the condition of Bundelkhand was "worse" compared to other states, he said his government would make a separate provision in the state budget, if necessary, for the region.
"No one can make allegations of bias against government in distributing relief to the affected people. The government is distributing food grains from state funds. We are trying to help the people here without any contribution from Centre," he said.
He said the state government is distributing packets of food grain, pulses, potatoes, oil, milk powder, salt and sugar.
Akhilesh Yadav also lambasted the BSP for raking up the issue of development in the state, saying a number of ministers and officers of its regime were in jail.
"If the path of BSP's development passes through jail, you can imagine, which type of development it can give," he said.
On the occasion, Chief Minister launched developmental projects worth several crores and announced plans to develop Deogarh as a tourist destination.
