GUWAHATI, Nov 3: Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi attributed his government's several people-centric schemes to the development of the State.

In view of AGP-BJP's allegation that under the regime of the present State Government road condition of Barak Valley remains bad, Gogoi said a comparative alysis of the performance of the AGP and Congress Government would dispel all cards.

In a statement here on Monday, Gogoi said under the AGP regime not to talk of Barak Valley alone the road condition in the entire State was in shambles. "Even wore a very shabby look on all fronts. The road condition was deplorable. Transportation from Dispur via Kahilipara was unthinkable. The road was not even fit for the pedestrians. A glimpse on to the present condition of the road by the AGP leadership would eble them to understand the development taken place in surface communication over the last 14 years in the State. In spite of the fact of being a supporting party of the erstwhile NDA Government, AGP failed miserably to develop the road condition," the statement said.

Gogoi also said when the present State Government took over the charge in 2001, the State had only 4367 km PWD pucca road and only 12 per cent of all PWD roads were pucca. However, since 2001, the present State Government took initiative to construct 25,189 km all-weather PWD pucca roads and 55 per cent of all PWD roads have been made pucca. Moreover, construction of pucca roads are going on for another 5,000 km roads in the State at present.
