Taking a dig at Bhupesh Government in the state BJP national vice president and former chief minister of Chhattisgarh Dr Raman Singh asked Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel about the progress in blueprint for employment, plan for liquor ban and evidence of Jhiram incident. According to Raman the blueprint for employment was chalked out before elections.
In a tweet today Dr Singh tagged the tweet of Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on 20 August 18 saying that before elections, Mr Baghel had evidence of the 2013 Naxalite attack in Jhiram, blueprint for employment, plan for liquor ban, money for allowances to the unemployed, and plan for procurement of paddy from farmers at Rs 2500 per quintal. But no progress was made on any of these plans since formation of Bhupesh government, Dr Singh said.
Mr Baghel had said in the tagged tweet that…‘Eradicating unemployment should not just be an election slogan and there should be no ‘Jumla’ at all. Chhattisgarh Congress is committed to eradicating unemployment, and the entire blueprint is ready. Now a few days of patience and…’
Dr Singh took a dig at Congress government in the state two days ago over reports of the early appointment of parliamentary secretaries by the Congress Government of the state, saying that Congress while being in opposition had moved High Court and even Supreme Court challenging the constitutional validity of the decision of previous BJP government to appoint parliamentary secretaries. But within 18 months after coming to power, Congress realized that the BJP government’s decision was right. Charging Congress with retracting its own statement and Dr Singh said that steps taken by the BJP government were now being followed by the Congress. How come the decisions that seemed wrong to Congress now turned right? he asked.
