KANNUR: Agriculture Minister K.R. Gouri has said that the achievements of the United Democratic Front (UDF) Government over the last four-and-a-half years could not be percolated down to the people.

Although there was more for the UDF Government to do, it failed to make people aware of its achievements, the Minister said at the district convention of the Janadhipathya Samrakshanan Samithi (JSS) here on Saturday.

Admitting that there was resentment among the people against the UDF, she said that the Government was yet to tackle the problems plaguing the industrial and agriculture sectors.

Recalling the assurance of the previous Finance Minister on the rehabilitation of arrack workers after the UDF Government came to power, Ms. Gouri said that the promise was not honoured.

She added that the JSS was not against special recruitment recommended by the Narendran Commission report. No consensus on the issue could be arrived at in the UDF, she said.

The Minister also said that the Finance Department's intervention had delayed implementation of people-friendly projects.
