Jamshedpur, Dec 25 (UNI) Launching counter-attack on the BJP's statewide demonstration against his government, Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda today asked the saffron party to give a statement on the work during the NDA's six years regime in the state.
Talking to mediapersons at Sonari airport here, Mr Koda, who vistied the steel city to pay homage to slain Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) leader Nirmal Mahto on his 57th birth anniversary, said the BJP was making unnecessary hue and cry over the roads, water and other infrastructural facilites but its leaders had forgotten about their own performances during the past six years.
''The BJP should first declare the details of the development work they undertook during the past six years, then we would give the performance of our one-year tenure,'' Mr Koda said.
The Chief Minister claimed that his government was doing ''good work'' despite being a coalition government.
He also said the Municipal elections in the state would be held in March and the notification for it would be issued in January.
To a question about exclusion of Jamshedpur in the list of millennium cities from the Centre's plan under the Jawarharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission(JNNURM), Mr Koda said the state government was looking into the matter and the city would be included in JNNURM.
Deviating from his earlier statements, JMM supremo Shibu Soren, who also accompanied Mr Koda, had given a clean chit to the UPA government, saying it was on the right track and doing well.
About his statement on the attack on tribals in Assam, Mr Soren added he only gave the offical version of the killing of one person in the violence.
''We have full sympathy towards the adivasis of Assam and their demand for Scheduled Tribes status,'' Mr Soren asserted.
