Questioning the inauguration and foundation stones unveiling spree by the chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat in the recent days, the state Congress said that the state government seemed to have done nothing over the past two years for the people of Uttarakhand. Speaking to the media persons at Rajiv Bhawan- the state party office of Congress- on Tuesday, the state Congress vice- president Surya Kant Dhasmana said that the spree of foundation laying and inaugurations has been triggered by the fact of the model code of conduct being enforced soon.
He termed it as evidence of the state government having done nothing over the past two years. He claimed that the CM is inaugurating the projects actually started by the Congress government. Launching a scathing attack on the Centre and the state government, the Congress leader said that the BJP leaders have realised that the people are angry and ready to teach them a lesson in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. “The Centre has done nothing in the last five years. Similarly, the state government has done nothing in the last two years. The much- touted double engine has failed miserably. The students, unemployed, farmers, employees, traders and other sections of the society are not happy with the government and in a fit of desperation, the BJP government and the chief minister are engaged in inauguration and foundation stone laying spree,’’ he said. The Congress leader claimed that 90 percent of the projects CM is inaugurating these days was started during the time of the previous government.
