The recent state budget is a hopeless one, it has neglected the poor people of the state, said General Secretary of Manipur Pradesh Brahatiya Janata Party (Admin), Moirangthem Ashnikumar.
Speaking to Imphal Times over phone, the General Secretary of BJP Manipur Pradesh said that the recent budget is an anti-people; there is no reflection on farmers and poor people. The agriculture sector and poor people is neglected in the budget.
The Governor of the state in his address to the ongoing Manipur Legislative Assembly session does not mention about the mechanism to curb corruption. The speech of the Government reflects the attitude of the present Congress government, said Asnikumar.
Stating that the 14-years of Ibobi-led Congress government in the state is a total disappointment’ the General Secretary said that a decade is more than enough to reform a society and develop the state. The government left the people of Manipur living at the mercy of the God.
The incumbent government has no governance at all; it is not a pro-active government. All the flagship program of the government is failed in the state. There is no policy for education, health and water in the state. The people of Manipur are suffering due to the sans of proper water policy of the state government, said the General Secretary of BJP, Manipur Pradesh.
The state government has taken a huge amount of money under PMKSY; however, it has implemented not a single welfare scheme for the welfare of the farmers and poor people of Manipur. The government is like a private company where the boss (Chief Minister, O Ibobi Singh) runs all the show. There is no good intention of the government and it is totally paralyzed in all front, he said.
Under the PMKS program, which was launched by the Prime Minister in the month of July, 2015 for the welfare of farmers, the Central government had spent around Rs 50 Cr. However, the state government failed to submit even a single plan for the welfare of the farmers under the flagship program of the present Central government, he pointed out.
Meanwhile, General Secretary of BJP, Manipur Pradesh (Media in-charge) Basanta Sharma said that the present government failed to maintain the law and order situation of the state, and it left the state into anarchic.
The Government has failed to protect the dignity of the state security force. The controversial suspension of 5 (five) personnel of Manipur Police is a perfect example of state government succumb to external influences.
