Dehradun: Opposition BJP in Uttarakhand on Sunday charged the state government with failure on all fronts and demanded a special session of the legislative Assembly to debate the problems afflicting the state.

A party delegation, led by the leader of opposition in the state assembly Ajay Bhatt called on the Governor Aziz Qureshi to ask him to convene a special session of the House.

Alleging that relief measures were yet to pick up speed in cloudburst-hit Uttarkashi district where 28 people were killed and thousand others rendered homeless last month, Bhatt said the government needs to address the problems being faced by people in the area.

He claimed that resentment was brewing up among employees of sugar mills after the government took a decision to run them under PPP mode and demanded that the move be withdrawn.

The BJP leader said that anarchic conditions were prevailing in the state with total breakdown of law and order in Udhamsingh Nagar district and shortage of teachers and doctors in different areas.
