State deprived once again, says AASU

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, Feb 28 � The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) today alleged that the Union Budget, presented today, once again deprived Assam despite the fact that the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh is a member of the Rajya Sabha from the State.

In a release here, the AASU said that though Congress is ruling in both Delhi and Dispur, the Government of India has been depriving Assam and the key issues concerning the people of the State were ignored in the budget.

The AASU pointed out that over the years, the problems like flood and erosion destroyed the economy of Assam, but in the Budget, no provision has been made for permanent solution of the problems. This proves that the Centre is still not considering flood and erosion as national problems.

The Budget also failed to address the problem of unemployment, which is a major issue for the youths of the state, while, no proposal has been made for setting up of new national institutes like the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research. The Budget also failed to make any proposal for the reopening of the Stilwell road, which is vital for the overall development of the entire North East region, the AASU said.
