Dimapur, September 25: The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) has alleged that the PDA Government in Nagaland has no policy to help build the State’s economy.
“The State Government has no policy to help build the economy. They have closed avenues for banks and other financial institutions from giving loans to the public. There is no effective organized agriculture market to help the farmers. There is no Minimum Support Price that is otherwise applied in the nation. Nothing for the people for five years,” alleged NPCC president K Therie in a press release.
On the shortfall of State Government revenue, as stated by the Finance Department, the NPCC said it does not matter to the public “as funds do not percolate down to the public.”
“Their plan is to loot development funds and buy land, properties, create more properties and buy votes in the next election. This is the politics of the ruling party and Government,” alleged Therie.
For the public, he said it is “by the sweat of thy brow shall thou eat bread.”
“Nagaland public has gone backwards to Adam and Eve’s time,” he alleged.
The NPCC stated that the deficit will continue to grow no matter whatever amount is given to the “corrupt state Government”.
“It has estimated Rs. 2,358.81 crores deficit by the current financial year end. What the State Government has done to improve the state’s own revenue is negative.”
Stating that he does not blame farmers for they may not understand modern economy, Therie, however, said it is time for the intellectuals to understand the need of reviving the economic policies and programme more than any other subject. (Page News Service)
