RIO DE JANEIRO Rickey Henderson Jersey , April 15 (Xinhua) -- The Brazilian government has rejected claims that the pubic cost of staging this year's World Cup has impacted funding for health and education.

In a speech to Brazil's congress on Tuesday, sports minister Aldo Rebelo said his portfolio's annual budget - which includes World Cup projects - is less than one percent of that for health and education.

"There are those who compare investments in the World Cup with health and education, as if there has been a misuse of resources. This argument does not have any weight," Rebelo said.

Rebelo's comments coincide with simmering anger in Brazil at the huge cost of staging the June 12-July 13 tournament.

Mass anti-government rallies that began during last June's Confederations Cup are expected to regain momentum during the World Cup.
