Govt lacks direction: Shettar

Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly, Jagadish Shettar, on Monday said Governor Vajubhai Vala’s address to the joint session of the Legislature lacked direction and proved that the government did not have a vision for development of the State.

Shettar said neither an action plan for the progress of the State nor priorities of the government had been spelt out in the address read out by the governor. “The State is facing drought, but the government has made no announcements to mitigate the crisis. Power disruption and drinking water scarcity is looming large , but the government seems to be unconcerned,” Shettar said.

He said the government’s penchant for getting into a confrontation with the Centre was a “dangerous trend”. The governor had been made to read some uncharitable remarks against the Centre in the address, he pointed out. Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council, K S Eshwarappa, said the government had failed to utilise Rs 1,500 crore grants released by the Centre. JD(S) leader Y S V Datta said it was clear that the government had lost interest in taking up developmental works and only wanted to complete its remaining two years in office.
