GUWAHATI: The first term of the ruling BJP government in Assam was a trailer, said Assam’s senior cabinet minister Himanta Biswa Sarma while adding that there is a lot more to come for the state in the coming days.
Sarma said, “For the first time BJP had come to power in Assam in last state assembly elections in 2016. People of Assam have seen how BJP led government has taken Assam on the path of progress and how so many works for public welfare have been done by this government in the first term itself. These five years were just a ‘trailer’; the whole movie is yet to come.”
The minister has been crisscrossing the state and holding bicycle rallies, public meetings and advocating why the BJP led government should remain in power in the state. On Wednesday, he took part in a cycle rally in Rangia, inaugurated Gate Saikia Multispeciality Hospital at Kamalpur of Baihata and laid the foundation stone of Amingaon Science Center and Planetarium, an ambitious project of the science and technology department at Pachim Dadara in North Guwahati.
Presenting the BJP led government’s report card and highlighting its future goals to the people of Dadara in Sarma’s Jalukbari constituency, the minister said, “In my constituency, there is IIT Guwahati, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, engineering college, residential schools besides other facilities. I am thinking about what can be done next. The government has started working on projects to construct a road along the embankment of river Brahmaputra and to build the state’s biggest cancer hospital in Amingaon too.”
Earlier, Sarma who is also the state’s finance minister reiterated that if comes to power, his government would waive off the loans borrowed by women from micro-finance institutions (MFI).
