Gogoi govt failed to fulfil pledges: KMSS

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, May 20 � Voluntary organization Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) today demanded resignation of the Tarun Gogoi-led Government for betraying the people of the State. The Tarun Gogoi-led Government has totally failed to fulfil its election pledges, alleged the Samiti.

Addressing a press conference here, KMSS president Molan Laskar, its secretary Akhil Gogoi and other office-bearers alleged that while the Government has failed to compensate judiciously those killed in the incidents of thunderstorm lightning and flood since March last till date, it is spending crores of rupees to celebrate its fourth anniversary on May 23.

So far 76 persons were killed in those incidents and 24 of them were killed in the incidents of lightning, said the KMSS office-bearers.

The Government instead of doing anything to bring succour to the family of victims of these incidents has, in a bid to lead the people astray, now started blowing its own trumpet in the name of celebrating its fourth anniversary.

Moreover, of the 88 election pledges made by the Congress in the 2006 Assembly elections, only three have been fulfilled by the Government it is heading in the State. These three pledges include the withdrawal of the additional excise duty imposed on the tea industry, raising of Government support to 50 per cent for re-plantation. Such a Government has no moral right to be in power, alleged the KMSS office bearers.

It has not taken the required steps to update the National Register of Citizens within two years as per its pledge. There is also no step to check influx from foreign countries nor there is any step to grant meaningful autonomy to the tribals of the State as per its commitment.

The Congress-led Government in the State has also failed to take up the issue of granting Scheduled Tribe (ST) status to the six ethnic groups, they alleged.
