Former Uttarakhand Chief Minister and Congress General Secretary Harish Rawat targeted the BJP and said that the BJP has not done any development of the state in the last four and a half years. If development had been done, then BJP would not have had to change chief minister one after the other. Former Chief Minister Harish Rawat said this in response to a post by BJP's national media chief and Rajya Sabha member Anil Baluni in the internet media.
In this post, Baluni had written that it would have been better if former Chief Minister Harish Rawat had a meaningful debate on the issue of development instead of doing the politics of appeasement. In response to this post on Sunday, Congress General Secretary Rawat wrote two posts. In the first post, he offered to question and answer BJP media chief Anil Baluni on development and employment. In the second post in the evening, while addressing Baluni as a beloved younger brother, he raised the issue of the state's economy, public welfare schemes and employment.
He wrote that his government started the Mera Gaon-Meri Sadak scheme while being the Chief Minister. With this, the target was set to connect remote villages by road, but this scheme was stopped during the tenure of the BJP. Mera Ped-Mera Dhan scheme was started for environmental protection. This plan was also discontinued. He made a plan to sow Manduwa and fix the government purchase price, that too was closed.
He said that no work has been done on the water policy that his government has formulated. Many development plans were made during his tenure, on which work was not done. He said that BJP leaders should tell which development schemes have been implemented by the three governments.
