Ranchi, November 23- On the occasion of the 22nd foundation day of the Jharkhand Legislative Assembly, a national conference on “Centre-State Relations” was organized in the Jharkhand Legislative Assembly. In which experts from all over the country including Assembly Speaker Rabindra Nath Mahato, MLA Ramchandra Chandravanshi, MLA Stephen Marandi participated. In recent times, the relationship between the center and the state was discussed. The growing distance between the center and the state and the benefits of better relations were discussed. The relationship between the Center and the States is very unique.
Center-State’s goal is to serve the public
On this occasion, Professor A. Lakshminath said, we have to think about the country. The state and the center will have to compromise on small issues. When the state will be strong then only the country will be strong, if there will be quarrels and disputes among themselves then nothing will be easy. He said that if we talk about the recent times, there is a lack of basic understanding somewhere, but everyone needs to know and understand what the constitution says. Everyone has to work together only then the development of the state is possible. He further said that the relation between the center and the state is for everyone and the aim of both is to serve the public.
Center and state need to coordinate
Whereas, Professor Dr. Dilip, who is the VC of Maharashtra National Law University, Mumbai. He said that the same party used to have the central and state government. After that both the different regional parties started growing in their respective states. A mixed government started forming in the center as well. However, gradually some regional parties started getting stronger in their state. Due to which the conflict between the center and the state started. At the same time, due to political relations and different ideologies between the two, situations of confrontation started to arise. Due to which differences started in the relationship between the two. He said that it is necessary to coordinate between the two. Both should work together to be financially capable for the future of the country and the state.
JMM MLA Stephen Marandi said, the joint structure relationship between the Center and the state is not visible as it should be. Non-Union Territory Governments are not treated well, which is very sad and the state is also suffering due to this.
People have to understand the rights of Centre-State
BJP MLA Ramchandra Chandravanshi said, it is very important to have reforms between the center and the state. If there is no improvement in the relationship between the two, then development is not possible. He said that the state will have to obey the order of the Center and development is possible only by working together. There is an independent relationship between the state and the center, and people have to understand what are the rights of the center and what are the rights of the state.
