CONGRESS LEADERS on Thursday lashed out at the Bhartiya Janata Party government in the State saying that it had failed to fulfil its electoral promises made to the people.
PCC president Subhash Yadav addressing a huge ‘Jan Akrosh’ rally of farmers in Shivpuri, held at the initiative of Guna MP Jyotiraditya Scindia, said the people continue to reel under erratic power supply and acute water crisis and dilapidated roads. But the government was claiming to be providing good governance, he told the rally at Polo Grounds.
Former minister Mahendra Singh Kalukheda, who also addressed the rally said the Congress was poised to uproot the BJP government.
“Under the dynamic leadership of Jyotiraditya Scindia, we will continue our struggle against the BJP’s misrule in MP”, Kalukheda declared. He urged the party workers to intensify attack against the BJP and mobilise grassroots workers and farmers to join the Congress struggle.
The rally was attended by farmers from different blocks of the district. Farmers from Badarwas and Kolaras blocks accused the government of backtracking from its promises made during the last election.
Kalukheda promised the farmer sufficient power, water and fertilizers if congress was returned to power in the State in the next election. “There will be no shortage of basic amenities for farmers and poor man will have enough resources to meet his requirements including good quality education to children and medical facilities,” promised Kalukheda.
The main roads leading to the Polo Ground in the town were decorated with party flags and banners and poster of Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Scindia. A convoy of around 400 cars accompanied the leaders, including district president Lal Singh and others.
Earlier during his brief stop over at Guna, the PCC chief alleged that State government has failed in maintaining law and order in the State. He said that after the violent incident at Biaora recently, the government has failed to instill confidence among the people. The Congress was worried that such things would have adverse effects on the development of the area. He also criticised the BJP over election to cooperatives.
