Chatra: Former Jharkhand Chief Minister and leader of opposition Hemant Soren today said that corruption, loot and unemployment were on an all-time high in the state and claimed that the present government can do nothing for the welfare of the people as it was
working for fulfilling the interest of the corporate houses.
Addressing the people on the course of his Sangharsh Yatra in Chatra district he said that for the all-round development of Simariya it was made a subdivision but it was neglected by the BJP and the people of the area of struggling for basic amenities of life. He said that under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan toilets have been given to the people which are now being used for storing cow dung and other items and alleged that 80 percent leaders of the BJP cannot get inside these toilets and if somehow they can get in then they would not be able to come out properly.
Mr. Soren accused the officials of being involved in a Rs 10 crore scam in providing a scholarship to the student and assured that when he would be back in power than the scholarship of the students studying in polytechnic and other institutes would be increased. The JMM leader said that in the rural areas schools have been closed and hundreds of more would be closed in future while on the other hand, the government is opening liquor shop in which it has suffered losses to the tune of Rs 1,000 crore and claimed that without commission no work of the poor was being done in the state.
Mr. Soren said the health minister was making a profit while on the other hand people continue to die in the government hospitals and they even do not get ambulances to take the dead to their homes. On the Mandal dam project, he said that the dam would not benefit the farmers of the state but on the contrary, the farmers in Bihar would be progressing. Mr. Soren alleged that after 2014 communal violence and atrocities on the Dalits has increased in the country. Continuing his attack on the center he said that people did not get Rs 15 lakh which was promised to them but instead in the name of demonetization the money kept in their
homes was looted by the government.
