Ranchi, February 13: Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren continued to attack BJP over inflation, unemployment and disturbing government from implementing policies for locals and moolvasis.
Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren addressing a rally as part of Khatiyani Johar Yatra in Chatra on Monday said that the saffron party had once termed inflation as ‘dayan’ (witch) but it appears to have become the party’s ‘bhaujai’ (sister-in-law).
“The party, which made a hue and cry over the slightest rise in prices (during UPA rule), is now silent when an LPG cylinder costs over Rs 1,000 and a litre of petrol more than Rs 100. At that time, they saw inflation as ‘dayan’ (witch). Now, it appears that inflation has become their ‘bhaujai’ (sister-in-law),” Soren said.
Soren said that when his government had framed the ‘Khatiyan’ or land records-based legislation to provide employment to locals, it was termed unconstitutional, while the Centre also “remains silent” on the Sarna code issue.
Commenting on the BJP misrule, Soren said, “Even after 20 years, why is our state lagging behind in terms of development? Where is the lacunae? The party which ruled the state for most period the same party ruled state developed like Maharashtra, Gujarat but it did not allow Jharkhand to develop and did not let tribal chief minister to complete their terms.”
Hemant Soren said that the government is constantly trying to increase the income of the farmers of the state. Our government has implemented many schemes for the betterment of the farmers.
Hemant Soren said that the people of the state are happy with the many important decisions taken by the state government and claimed that their government has done the work of giving rights and entitlements to Anganwadi workers, para teachers and government employees.
Chief Minister Mr. Hemant Soren said that under the Sarkar Aapke Dwar programme, officials went to village-village, panchayat-panchayat and resolved the problems of the people through camps. Earlier people had to visit the block offices whereas today the government itself has reached the doorsteps of the common people.
