Lucknow, Feb 8 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Governor T V Rajeswar today maintained that the Mayawati government in the state has resolved to adopt a stand of cooperation instead of collision so that the issues of development could remain free from political manoeuvring.
''My government accordingly, expect required co-operation from the Centre towards the development of UP'', the Governor said while addressing the joint session of the state legislature on the opening day of the budget session here.
In his address the Ggovernor said in the absence of required financial assistance the state government is facing difficulty in the implementation of ambitious projects of development and prosperity.
Even after several requests, the Centre had not considered any financial package for the state particularly to the people of the Bundelkhand region who were reeling under an acute drought situation.
The Governor said the government was making constant efforts to establish an impartial, transparent and an entirely clean system for a prosperous and 'Uttam' Uttar Pradesh.
Though after receiving no response from the Centre of any help, the state government would not sit idle as it was not the style of the present government and would carry on the process of development by taking new initiatives despite its limited resources.
''My government hopes that the Centre would soon realise the needs of the state and would extend desired co-operation in the interest of the state and the country'', he further said in his 96 page speech written in Hindi.
Mr Rajeswar could not read his speech due to pandemonium created by the opposition parties in the House during the joint session and just read the first and last line of his speech.
