GUWAHATI, March 2 � The Opposition today took the Government to task, alleging that the Governor�s address presented a picture of the State which was far from the reality.
Participating in the debate on the motion of thanks on the Governor�s speech, Padma Hazarika (AGP) said all that the Government did in the last ten years was to flooding the people with promises with little intent to honour those.
�A meagre 13.33 per cent of the announcements made by the Government � including those by the Chief Minister on New Year � have been implemented. Of 20 ambitious projects, 17 have remained unexecuted. Same is the case with the promises made by the Prime Minister,� Hazarika said, adding that it amounted to deceiving the people.
On the employment front, Hazarika said that the Government chose to abolish 12,345 posts. It also failed to keep its promise of ensuring cent per cent local recruitment in third and fourth grade jobs in Central and semi-Central undertaking jobs.
