SHILLONG, May 10: The Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Friday cast aspersions on Chief Minister Conrad k Sangma, alleging lack of planning, execution and preparedness on the government’s part to deal with environmental threats.
“The chief minister has set foot on the catchment of Um Jaijai. Now, he can very well see how his departments are disorganised, disoriented when actually the Soil and Water Conservation department and the PHE department, who should have known all these threats beforehand and should have alerted the government, have failed in their duty to work cohesively to protect the interests of the people of the state,” said TMC state youth president, Fernandez Dkhar.
Stating that it takes a chief minister to walk and trek to discern the “incompetence” of his own department, Dkhar said, “The CM has himself exposed not only his governance and his government incompetence in handling the environmental threats but, at the same time, we can speak of the picture across the state where such threats are beings seen across all water sources.” Questioning how the departments and their officials can be trusted, he also trained his guns on the environmentalists.
“We have seen environmentalists preaching about environmental issues and effects but they just end up preaching on social media. They are also headless and armless, and just talk. We, citizens, are fed up with this nonsense,” Dkhar said.
“Why should the public keep paying for such incompetence, lack of responsibility and lethargic attitude of all these departments who have failed in serving the people of the state irrespective of political leadership?,” he added.
