Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma during I-Day celebration

Guwahati: In a bid to provide relief to the judiciary system from the burden of pending cases, Assam government has announced to withdraw some one lakh ‘minor cases’ including many of objectionable social media posts related cases, said chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma during the 76th Independence Day celebration here.

Around 4 lakh cases were pending before judiciary in the state.

Sarma said, “The reduction of these one lakh cases will help the judiciary to provide speedy justice system and to focus on cases related to heinous crimes like rape, murder, etc.”

He also said that state government would send around 1000 youths to visit the cellular jail in Andaman and Nicobar Island to learn the valour and sacrifices of the freedom fighters during British regime. It would be a part of an educational tour.

Sarma also informed that the state’s self help groups have sold some 42 lakh of national flags in the last few weeks with a total cost of RS 17 Crores.
