via Pioneer News Service | Thiruvananthapuram published on August 25, 2006

State BJP spokesperson BK Sekhar said that the first 100 days of the LDF rule under VS Achuthanandan has presented only disappointment. The LDF Government failed to make any impact in the State affairs compared to the rule of the previous UDF Government.

Addressing newspersons here on Friday, Sekhar said that inexperience of the Ministers was evident in the manner of governance and the Ministers showed no responsibility to the position they were holding. He alleged that Achuthanandan was away from the Secretariat for 42 days out of these 100 days and he had no time for governance as he was busy with party programmes like many of his Cabinet colleagues.

“There was so much expectation when Achuthanandan became the Chief Minister. But he was not able to deliver. Even on issues he had raised when he was Oppositon leader, including corruption at the bureaucratical level and atrocities against women, he was able to do nothing,” said Sekhar. Achuthanandan was helpless like a bird in a golden cage, he added.

He said that there was no different in the LDF governance from the UDF rule. Alleging that Corruption, utter chaos in the Law and order situation and crisis in educational sector was remaining same as the UDF rule he said that factionalism within the CPI (M) was affecting the governance.

Sekhar said that the suicides by farmers were continuing and instead of providing financial assistance to the farmers who were facing crisis, the Government was only providing aid to families of those who had committed suicide. “The help is rendered to the families of farmers who committed suicide. I doubt whether this grave situation had caused more suicides,” he remarked.

Sekhar accused Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan of lack of control over the Police Department. Blaming both the LDF and UDF for the critical condition of the State Treasury, he said that successive governments had little to offer to improve the situation. “When there is such a financial situation, the Government informs the court that online lottery dues to be collected would come to the tune of Rs 5,750 crore. The concerned Minister is observing silence regarding the issue,” he remarked.
