Itanagar: The BJP in Arunachal Pradesh on Wednesday demanded the state government constitute a state food commission and district redressal cells for proper and holistic implementation of the National Food Security Act.

Criticising the state government for implementation of the Act without fulfilling basic requirements, the BJP state president Tai Tagak alleged the development of the state was being reversed and the huge debt liability of over Rs 7,000 crore, created by the misrule of successive Congress governments, has imposed huge financial burden on the people.

The function of the government has become that of a mere "news agent" selling the quantum of funds flow from the Centre, Tagak told reporters here, while alleging that huge chunk of money pouring in to the state have not percolated down to the grass root and reached the targeted beneficiaries.

"Organising Vikas Rally to highlight the achievements of the state government is nothing, but a ploy to befool the people at the cost of the state exchequer," he said.

"It is high time the youth and women come out and resist such attitudes of the government and demand for a change," the BJP leader added.
