Says chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat should resign as he has proved to be a failure.
The Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Pritam Singh has accused the state government for having no vision.
Talking to The Pioneer at Rajiv Bhawan, the headquarter of the state unit of the Congress party, he said that since chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat has proved to be a failure on every front, he should resign.
Launching into a blistering attack on the CM, the PCC president said that the CM is heading the excise department and it is unfortunate that he issued a statement on the tragic deaths caused by the illicit liquor in heart of provisional state capital, three days after the incident. He added that the incident reflects that the state government has taken no lesson from the liquor tragedy that struck Haridwar in February this year. In this tragedy 44 people had lost their lives. Taking potshots on the information that the state government is planning to introduce life imprisonment for those found responsible for the deaths in the cases of illicit liquor. “Only recently they had brought an amendment in the excise act and increased the jail term. I want to ask- how many people were booked under the new law after the liquor tragedy of Haridwar?” On the arrest of Ajay Sonekar alias Ghonchu and the game of political accusation and counter on his party affiliations, the PCC chief said that there should be no politics on such issues and the culprit whosoever he may be should be dealt in a strong manner. Continuing his diatribe on the CM, he said that the health services in the state are in shambles and the health department does not even have the data of dengue patients in Dehradun. The PCC chief said that since the health department is also headed by CM and he is directly responsible for the pathetic health services. He added that the disaster management department which again is headed by none other than the CM himself has failed miserably.
On the upcoming Panchayat elections in 12 districts of state, Singh said that the Congress party would contest these elections with its full might. “The people of the state have seen how all the promises made by the BJP during the assembly elections of 2014 have been totally ignored by its government. The farmers, traders, unemployed and general public is suffering under the current regime. It is really unfortunate that no employment is given in the year of the employment declared by the state government,’’ he said.
The PCC President claimed that the reverse counting of the BJP government in state has started and the events like ‘Howdy Modi’ would not help the government.
