BJP stresses on decentralisation of power

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, Jan 7 � The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Assam Pradesh today stated that decentralisation of power in the true sense of the term was yet to be achieved by the State as those at the helm of affairs never bothered to ensure that the people at the grass roots enjoyed their constitutional rights.

The party, focusing on the issue of decentralisation of power in the ensuing Panchayat election, said that most of the schemes meant for the development of rural masses were not implemented with earnestness.

The last date of filing of nominations for third and final phase of Panchayat election is January 16. Tomorrow is the last date for filing of nominations for the second phase.

The party�s State Panchayat Election Management Committee chairman Narayan Borkataky said that the BJP�s performance this time would improve as people have come to realize that it is the only viable opposition.

�We are confident of our performance this time. People want their grievances to be addressed and one of their main issues is rampant corruption that has stalled the process of development,� said Borkataky pointing out corruption was the order of the day in all most all the Gaon Panchayats.

The BJP, which has been promising elimination of corruption and transparency in administration, will highlight the issue of corruption as its poll strategy and will also emphasise on the need for ethics-based politics. Soaring price rise of all essential commodities, including food grain, will be another issue for the party that is optimistic of winning the support of the electorate.

�This time we feel there will be a strong representation from the fairer sex. The party is happy that more women are coming forward to contest the local polls,� said Borkataky.
