Dehradun, September 30
BJP Rajya Sabha MP and former state Chief Minister Bhagat Singh Koshiyari today accused the state government of utilising just 12 per cent of its annual budget despite half of the current financial year already coming to a close.
Addressing mediapersons here, Koshiyari said it was strange that the Congress government had spent just 12 per cent of the state’s annual budget when half of the current financial year was coming to a close. He said it revealed the state government’s little concern for development. He said Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna was busy with his son Saket Bahuguna in the Tehri parliamentary elections and development had taken a back seat in the state.
He said the Congress was violating model code of conduct repeatedly in the Tehri bypoll campaigning. He said two helicopters were being put to use by the Congress for the election campaigning.
Koshiyari also took the Congress government to task over the issue of law and order in the state. He said crime graph in the state, particularly Dehradun, was on the rise and the state government was a mute spectator to this issue. He said roads in Dehradun were in poor condition and the state government was showing little interest in repairing these.
He also targeted the UPA government at the Centre, asserting that one-rank one-pension demand of the ex-defence personnel must be implemented completely and not in partial manner as was being done by the Centre.
