Senior Congress leader and former minister Brij Behari Lal Butail has alleged BJP led government for neglecting the development of Palampur in the past over four years.
Addressing mediapersons, Butail said that in the past over four years of BJP regime not even a single new project was sanctioned for Palampur. He alleged that the BJP Govt only inaugurated those projects which were launched by the Congress government when he was MLA from Palampur. He said funds were also sanctioned by the Congress for various projects and the then Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh had laid the foundation stones of the same.
Butail criticized BJP regime and claimed that in the past four years, state Govt had laid foundation stones for 12 new projects in the town, but till date no construction was taken up for these projects despite availability of funds.
Butail said though the new hospital complex had been declared open by the Chief Minister three years ago, government had failed to fill the posts of doctor here. He said the post of gynaecologist and ENT specialist were lying vacant for the past one year.
