No reality in Governor's policy address: BJP
Thiruvananthapuram, Jun 17 : The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Kerala today alleged that the Governor's policy address in the State Assembly contained only promises that could not be fulfilled.
''The people in the state have great expectations on the new CPI(M)-led LDF government, but it's policy address was only a bunch of imagiations and promises by not reflecting the actual situation in the state," party spokesman B K Sekhar told mediapersons here.
After completing one month in power Chief Minister V S Achuthanandan could not concentrate on administration and even failed to take decisions on vital issues, because he spent most of his days attending party meetings, he charged.
The appointment of former Managing Director of the Malabar Cements as the new MD of the Kerala Minerals and Metals by Industries Minister Elamaram Kareem showed that Mr Achuthanandan had no control over his ministers, he said.
Mr Achuthanandan had raised corruption charges against the MD while he was the Leader of the Opposition.
Mr Sekhar said many promises in the policy address like free electricity to the BPL families and creation of six lakh job opportunities were practially not viable.
The government promise of setting up a Debt Relief Commission with quasi judicial powers to help debt-trapped farmers would not be possible as the existing laws could not be overcome, he said.
