Says BJP government failed on every front in last four years
The Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Pritam Singh has said that the ripped jeans remark of chief minister Tirath Singh Rawat underlies the mentality of the BJP towards women. Talking to the media persons at the state headquarter of the party on Friday, he said, “He had also compared Prime Minister Modi with Lord Ram, I would pray to the god that better sense should prevail on him.’’
Terming the BJP government in the state as a complete failure, the PCC president said that the BJP and the government could not muster the courage to highlight the achievement of four years of rule. Only former CM Trivendra Singh Rawat patted his own back, he said. Singh reminded that the former CM Trivendra Singh Rawat in his first press conference had promised to build Kandi road to connect Garhwal and Kumaon region but the promise has remained unfulfilled. He said that on his second PC on November 3, 2017 the CM had vowed to have ‘zero tolerance on corruption’ and promised that Lokayukt would be brought within 100 days. The PCC president that the CM had also announced on the floor of the assembly that CBI inquiry would be conducted in the NH-74 scam but all these promises were never fulfilled. “The zero tolerance on corruption rhetoric was exposed when the HC ordered a CBI inquiry on charges of corruption on CM himself. A central minister had complained about corruption in Kumbh works, the irrigation minister complained about irregularities in Suryadhar lake,’’ he said.
The PCC president said that in the run up to the assembly elections of 2017 the BJP had promised that it would waive off the loans of the farmers but conveniently forgot the promise. In last four years 17 farmers have committed suicide
