KMSS call to oust Cong from power

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 18 � Peasant organisation Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) today made an appeal to the people of the State to vote Congress out of power using their right to franchise in the ensuing Assembly elections in the State.

It has also demanded use of new and upgraded model of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) in the Assembly elections with the provision of vote verifiable paper audit trial (VVPAT) to check vote tampering by the ruling party.

The peasant organisation is going to organise at least two meetings in each of the 126 legislative Assembly constituencies (LACs) in the State to make the people aware of the misdeeds of the present regime and also to mobilise public opinion in support of the new model EVMs and VVPAT.

To justify the call, Akhil Gogoi, secretary of the organiszation told newspersons at a press conference here this afternoon that the present Tarun Gogoi-led Congress regime has committed 50 serious offences against the people of the State.

Akhil Gogoi said that the present regime had decided formally to stop new recruitment and to abolish vacant posts in all government departments and public sector units (PSUs).

The present regime has refused to provincialise educational institutions and thus deprived 17,000 primary and secondary schools and colleges from being provincialised.

The Tarun Gogoi-led government has also led to closure of 15 PSUs and 12 PSUs are now gasping for life for the anti-people policy of the present regime. This has posed a serious threat to around 24,777 employees of these units.

The policies of the present regime have also led to abnormal rise in the prices of essential items and bus fares have also been hiked abnormally during its rule, said the KMSS secretary.

The present regime, with its policies, like inclusion of class- V in primary level and announcing this decision hurriedly on the eve of the beginning of the academic session, has also led to total anarchy in the education sector. This is going to affect the government-run schools and help the private sector schools, alleged Akhil Gogoi.

Similarly, he said, the higher secondary classes have been withdrawn from the colleges.

The present government has introduced NCERT textbooks which are not State-specific. Likewise, the government has raised the tuition fees of the educational institutions, he alleged.

Under the rule of the present government, the prices of life-saving drugs have also shot up abnormally and the service charges in the government-run hospitals have also been hiked by the Congress-led government.

Moreover, the government has allowed the prices of silk yarn to shoot up abnormally and thus pushed the State�s silk industry to the brink.

The Congress-led government, contrary to its tall claim, has failed to bring any new investment, barring some polluting cement etc units, to the State and under its rule, law and order system has collapsed with the rise in the criminal activities.

Besides, it has indulged in rampant embezzlement of the Central Government funds, treated the tea garden workers only as vote banks, destroyed the forests and water bodies of the State and kept the daily wage of the tea garden workers as low as Rs 68.50 against the NREGA wage of Rs 130 a day.

The present government has also failed to initiate the judicial process against those involved in secret killing and extended support to the mega-dam lobby going against the observations made by the experts on the issue, said the KMSS secretary.
