Ranchi, Nov 13 (UNI) In a renewed attack, the Congress, a major ally of the Madhu Koda-led UPA government in Jharkhand, today lambasted the government for indulging in mud-slinging and asked the chief minister to pay more attention to the state's welfare.
A day after Congress state president Pradeep Kumar Balmuchu set a deadline till November 15, regarding the party's decision to continue their support with the 13-month-old government, chief spokesperson Pradeep Tulsiyan said the party had been expressing concern over the misgovernance of the government for the past six months.
The party did not extend outside support to Mr Koda's council of ministers just for the sake of stbility but solely with the aim to make the government deliver the goods, Mr Tulsiyan said.
After nearly 13 months, it became clear that Mr Koda not only lacked leadership quality but also hardly had any vision, the Congress chief spokesperson said.
The Dr Manmohan Singh-led UPA government at the Centre was giving full support to the state by releasing large number of centrally sponsored projects but nothing could be utilised efficiently, he said.
The ministers seemed to be more interested in organising industrial and trade fair for the personal gain but the government was yet to formulate a proper industrial policy, Mr Tulsiyan said.
The Congress could realise its responsibility towards the people and the other allies of the present UPA governemnt in the state should not blame the Congress when misdeeds of the Koda were exposed.
