Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Tuesday lambasted his predecessor Raman Singh for leaving behind the state in an adverse condition.
Taking to media persons here at Raipur Helipad, Baghel alleged that the state is lagging behind in all the development parameters, including education, health and employment.
“I have inherited the state where more than 40% of the state populace is living below poverty level, number of people residing in slums in the state is highest in the country and state of affairs of education is in a dilapidated condition,” he said.
If BJP had ensured good governance then why 39% women are suffering from anemia and 33% children are facing malnutrition, he added.
Talking about his Dantewada campaign, Baghel further said his party candidate is certainly going to win the seat as BJP has nothing to show as their achievement of past 15 years.
The election in-charge of BJP in the constituency Shivratan Sharma had paved the way for allotment of controversial iron ore block no 13 in Dantewada to Adani group while another in-charge and former Dantewada Collector and now bureaucrat turned politician O.P. Choudhary during his tenure as a district collector only provided benefits to the contractors, he said.
He also refuted the BJP’s charges that his government is indulging in politics of vengeance and said what is the harm in conducting probe by investigating agencies into allegations of wrong doings.
