In 2009-10, under the UPA, it was 1,86,000 crores,' Tewari said.He said that there was no discrimination with the BJP-ruled Karnataka in sanctioning money for city policing scheme in Bangalore. He said while Chennai had been provided Rs.15 crore, Hyderabad Rs.9.79 crore, Bangalore was provided Rs.12.14 crore.'It does not behove a political party of the country to lie,' Tewari said.He added that the BJP should seek the views of its alliance partner Shiromani Akali Dal before making allegations that the central government had stopped excise concessions to Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand.The Akali Dal has opposed extension of excise concessions to the two hill states.
