THE STATE unit of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) will launch an agitation at the district-level across the State to protest the total failure of the State Government on all fronts including law and order, provision of basic infrastructure and corruption.
Addressing a press conference today, State vice-president and spokesman of the party Captain V P Singh (retired) said the district-level agitation, inclusive of dharna and agitations would be launched after January 15 where district specific problems would also be taken up.
Captain Singh said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Government was in power for the last two years, but there was no succour for the common people, rather the situation on all fronts has worsened.
He said law and order had collapsed and the crime graph has gone up in State, there has been no provision for basic needs like water, roads, electricity, corruption has risen, the problems of employees, mainly the daily wagers have deepened. Health facilities also have worsened and overall life had become more difficult in the State.
Rather than solving these issues, the State Government has been busy in power games with three Chief Ministers being changed in two years.
The spokesman also said a membership drive would be conducted in the State which would target enrollment of least 1.5 lakh new members at the rate of 25,000 members per division.
He also mentioned that two new committees – a State Working Committee – that would be authorised to take unanimous decisions on major issues and a disciplinary committee had been formed under the chairmanship of Anil Tiwari and Gaya Prasad Patel respectively.
The party also condemned the unconstitutional and partial attitude of the State Government in not allotting an office to the NCP in the State capital. Captain Singh said the allotment had not been made despite the State president Hamid Qazi meeting successive Chief Ministers.
