AGP slams Govt for its failure

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, June 9 � The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) today slammed the State Government alleging that the latter has miserably failed to ensure growth in all three fronts which are the basic indicators of a good governance of a State.

The Opposition party, refering to the criterion of a good governance set by World Bank, International Monetary Fund(IMF) and United Nations, alleged that the functioning of the Congress-led Government lacks accountability and transparency, the two primary ingredients of good governance.

�Our country largely depends on sectors like agriculture, industry and power and the Assam Government is lagging far behind in all the three fronts,� said AGP president Chandra Mohan Patowary during a press conference.

The regional party also came up with a performance scorecard that put Assam on the 29th position for its performance from April, 2009 to February 2010.

Surprisingly, the regional party abstained from disclosing the source of the scorecard.

Asked by this reporter, Patowary, said, � The inputs have been taken from a Central research agency and also from media sources but we cannot disclose the source now. We would provide more inputs in the coming days�

The scorecard ranked Himachal Pradesh as the number one State.

The AGP chief also dared the State Government to come up with a White Paper on the use of Central funds.

Sarbananda Sonowal, general secretary, AGP further said that the policies of the State Government has turned Assam into a mere �consumer State� and all the tall claims of development are nothing but a eye wash.
