Jamshedpur: The former Chief Minster of Jharkhand and national vice-president of BJP Raghubar Das criticised the performance of Hemant Soren government in Jharkhand and said that it has failed on fronts of governance.
He was speaking at the meeting of his party’s Sitaramdera unit Working Committee on Thursday at Ashish Kishor Sangh located in Bhalubhasha.
Raghubar Das attended the meeting held under the chairmanship of Mandal President Suresh Sharma.
The meeting was duly inaugurated by lighting a lamp and garlanding of Dr. Shyama Prasad Mukherjee’s photo.
It was done by paying floral tributes to the portraits of Deendayal Upadhyay and Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
Addressing the meeting, the speakers called for taking the achievements and welfare schemes of the central government and the failures of the state government to the people.
Raghubar Das stressed on strengthening the organisation and adding new members to the party.
He said that BJP is a party of workers. In BJP, he said, a worker can lead the state from Mandal President.
He expressed his gratitude to the workers of Sitaramdera Mandal in his journey from Sitaramdera Mandal President to the Chief Minister of the state.
The former CM accused the state government of running away from issues. He said that the state government was trying to evade its responsibility.
In the government, everyone including the Chief Minister, he said, are only giving statements.
There has been an eclipse on development plans in Jharkhand. Problems like deteriorating health system, rising women crime, power crises, naxalism in the state indicate the failure of the government, he said.
He said that the big promises of the Grand Alliance government were confined to newspaper headlines only.
Mr. Das said that corruption is at its peak in the state. There is open loot of mineral wealth. Liquor mafia is being protected. The business of brown sugar is booming in the city due to which the future of the younger generation is becoming bleak.
He said that fFake cases are being filed against BJP workers and public. Freedom of expression is under attack in the state. In the last one and a half years, the Hemant government has adopted an antagonistic attitude towards dalits, tribals, youth, women.
He called upon the BJP workers to take the failure of the state government to the public by being vocal.
