Agartala : By Our Correspondent
The Congress would implement the 6th Pay Commission’s recommendations for the deprived state government employees, if the party comes to the power, assured Union Minister for Finance P Chidambaram.
Criticizing the failure of Left Front government to change the ‘fortune’ of the state, Dr. Chidambaram here today said that the Congress would fulfill all the promises mentioned in the manifesto, if the party forms the government after elections.
While addressing an election rally at Halahali ground in Kamalpur, Chidambaram assured that the manifesto was released after being approved by AICC.
Highlighting the ‘promises’ mentioned in the party manifesto, Dr. Chidambaram said, “ The Congress party will provide employment to at least one person in each family including unemployment allowance to the rest unemployed. For the poor people, the party promised of offering 35 kilograms of rice at Re 1.”
Later, giving a bash to the Left Front government, the Union Minister said that the Left Front government has failed to improve the standard of life in the state after reining the state for 4 consecutive terms in the elections.
“Tripura has turned into one of the backward states in the country during the prolonged 20 years old of Marxist regime. As a result, 67% of the people live below poverty line in the state. Even the women are feeling a sense of insecurity. For this, it is necessary to form a new government after eradicating the CPM party from the state,” said Chidambaram.
Chidambaram campaigned in favor of Manojkanti Deb, contestant for 45 no. Kamalpur Assembly constituency.
After that, campaigning for Sukharanjan Das for Surma Assembly constituency at Shantirbazaar, Chidambaram piled blame on the Left Front government for its failure to set up industrial plant in the state during the past 20 years.
The Union minister also pointed out that most of the hospitals is facing the dearth of ambulance facilities.
