People disappointed with Dhami Government rule: Karan Mahara

By Our Staff Reporter
Dehradun, 23 Mar: Pradesh Congress Committee Chief Karan Mahara today issued a statement on the occasion of completion of two years in power of the BJP Government led by CM Pushkar Singh DhamiMahara targeted the two-year tenure of the Dhami government. Congress state president Karan Mahara has described the two-year tenure of the Dhami government as hugely disappointing.
Mahara claimed that the Dhami Government has no major achievements to its credit in the past two years. He also claimed that the Dhami Government has promoted mining mafia in the state and has ignored large scale illegal quarrying and mining in the state. The Dhami government has not done any work towards women empowerment in these two years, he also claimed. According to the NCRB report, Uttarakhand has reached first place among the Himalayan states as far as crimes against women are concerned. The PCC Chief added that organising some programmes in name of empowering women is one thing but the ground reality is totally another. The reality is very far away from the claims of the government in this respect. The Congress state president said that the Police have still not revealed the name of the VIP involved in the Ankita Bhandari case. He also claimed that the evidence related to the Ankita Bhandari murder case was allowed to be destroyed. He also reminded that Mamta Joshi Bahuguna has been missing for the past 4 years and that everyone knows the condition of Kiran Negi, but not much has been done to solve these cases and that there is strong need to work sincerely towards this.
Karan Mahara described the two years of Dhami government as a complete failure. The government has failed on all fronts whether it is tackling unemployment, improving law and order or curbing corruption or controlling inflation. Mahara said had Pushkar Singh Dhami has not done something in these two years on the issues like the case of theft of gold layer from the temple in Kedarnath, violation of the protocols of the sanctum sanctorum in Kedarnath, on the recruitment scam done at Uttarakhand Subordinate Services Selection Commission (UKSSSC) and about rigging of various competitive examinations like Patwari paper leak, about anti state excise policy of the state, about the Agniveer Yojana.  Mahara also claimed that 70 to 80 percent of the people of the state are angry and disappointed over the poor governance of the Dhami Government during its two year tenure so far.
Mahara alleged that the BJP government is still silent on who is the white-collar leader involved in the scam alleged by S Raju, the then Chairman of the UKSSSC, in his resignation letter.  He also asked that one of the major accused on the recruitment scams Hakam Singh, was a leader of the ruling party. Corruption is flourishing under the protection of the government during the two years of its tenure.
The State Congress President also said that the number of unemployed in the state is increasing every day but the government chooses to lathi charge the unemployed when they demand for employment. The quality of construction of various projects is low and that the small contractors are being exploited by the officers. The government has not formulated any policy for regulation of slums. Small scale industries established in the state are shutting down regularly and the government has failed to stop the migration of big industries from the state. In these two years, the health services of the state has completely collapsed and women are forced to give birth in toilets.
He said that the affected families of Joshimath tragedy kept demanding displacement from the government but the Dhami government of the state failed to take concrete decisions for the displacement and reconstruction of the disaster victims.
Mahara also alleged liquor mafia and mining mafia dominate the state. Due to liquor smuggling and corruption in mining under government patronage, the government is losing revenue worth crores of rupees. The government has not been able to pay the previous dues of the sugarcane farmers and the farmers have been exploited by not increasing the support price of the new crop. Due to continuous increase in the prices of water and electricity, the burden of inflation was continuously put on the common man.
