“In this region, there is severe shortage of drinking water, the pure drinking dispensing units are not functioning and people were not paid for the work done under the Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme”.
While urging the state government to take immediate actions to address the grievances of the people of the drought affected areas, he said that “In a day or two all the MLAs and MPs belonging to BJP will stage dharna to awaken the government”.
Referring to the Chief minister’s plan to go for Village stay, the BJP leader criticised it as a ‘gimmick’ and will not help the people.
“If chief minister has a real concern for the welfare of the people, he should tour the state and plug the loopholes” he said.
