  1. This is a good start of the new Government. The time has come now that the top leadership of the congress should lesson their differences and run the State Government with best of the governance. They should not forget that they have got victory with a small margin and their difference will help the opposition at any time. The new Government should work unitedly for the welfare and upliftment of poor class of people and it should vigorously fight for the development of each corner of the state and against the corruption which is at a large scale at present. The new Government should work for the construction of International Airport in the middle of the State, increase railway network, provide effective drinking water to each family, provide irrigation facilities to each village, beed out the corrupt officers/ officials who have earned assets and properties diss appropriate to their known source of income, those political leaders who has done corruption must also be booked after hold summery inquiries , new Government should provide three phase electricity to each and every village and connect each and every village with road and transport facilities. The public of the state now is aware of their rights and the time has come when they will not vote any one to power if his behavior with the public and non functioning properly for the welfare of the public , it will heavily burden the representative of the public during the coming elections.
