Itagar, June 8: Aruchal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) President Takam Sanjoy has condemned the alleged ‘undemocratic’ functioning of BJP-led NEDA government headed by Chief Minister Pema Khandu in the state.
Sanjoy in a statement on Thursday said that the ministers, who are top executives of the state, are not given their due role in the functioning and delivering of basic programmes and policies of the government. “The government is not able to monitor the flow and availability of cash in this isolated state of country. The concept of digital transaction is absolutely next to impossible in traditiol joint family system of tribal societies. As a result, even after post demonetization there is no cash in various banks of the capital and other parts of the state,” Sanjoy claimed.
“Many banks have closed due to fear of depositors seeking cash withdrawal. Small business owners, vegetable vendors, meat vendors and even the normal public are facing the heat of demonetization till date,” he alleged.
Terming the Khandu government as a bureaucratic government, the APCC chief added that a few bureaucrats are dictating its functioning while many of senior bureaucrats and technocrats including ministers, MLAs and other elected bodies are intentiolly sidelined from the day-to-day works of the government.
“The Congress party which the people voted to power in the state will not remain a mute spectator to the large scale of corruption including gross funding of state exchequer to only two districts of the state. We will be compelled to come out to the streets to give justice to other 60 constituencies,” the statement added.
