Shillong, Nov 11 (UNI) The Meghalaya unit of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) today criticised the Congress-led Meghalaya Democratic Alliance government for its alleged ''failure'' to meet the aspirations of the people in the state.

''The Congress government has failed to bring about development in the state, as majority of the lawmakers are highly corrupt,'' NCP Youth Wing (Meghalaya) president Aldo Sangma told UNI here.

''He said, ''The state Health department is in shambles, as primary health centers in the remote areas of the state have failed to cater to the poor patients.'' Mr Sangma said for better performance, a hospital should first have the necessary infrastructure and the doctors should not be blamed on every occasion.

The youth wing members of the NCP had held a meeting here yesterday to gauge the achievement of the coalition government in the state over the past four years.

On the ''deplorable road condition'' across the state, the former student leader-turned-politician lambasted the Lapang-led government in the state for its alleged failure to maintain the roads.

The Youth NCP leader also raised concerns over ''huge anomalies'' in the Public Distribution System (PDS) in the state.

''The poor are often deprived of the benefits of the PDS,'' Mr Sangma said.

The Congress, which is the largest party in the 60-member House, is supported by the United Democratic Party, Meghalaya Democratic Party, Hill State People's Democratic Party, Khun Hynniewtrep National Awakening Movement and Independent MLAs.
