GUWAHATI, Sept 6 - Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) today dared minister Himanta Biswa Sarma to run his departments efficiently. It alleged that due to the failure of Sarma to run his departments competently, the Departments of Education and Health are now undergoing a serious crisis.
The APCC said in a statement here that the illogical decisions of the Education Department have compelled the students, who got their names enrolled in the medical colleges this year and those who are studying in the engineering colleges of the State, to take to the streets.
The Government has failed to provide free uniforms to the school students for the past two years, let alone the timely supply of the textbooks, said the APCC.
Thousands of teachers had to stage sit-in demonstrations on the Teachers� Day this year in protest against non-redressal of their long-standing grievances.
In the Health Department, supply of medicines is not regular, health centres are non-functional and machines are also not working.
But minister Sarma, instead of concentrating on resolving these issues, has been indulging in hyperboles to divert popular attention from the real issues.
