Northeast’s progress fast-tracked after BJP came to power

Guwahati: The delayed progress in northeast Bharat was fast-tracked after the Bhartiya Janata Party-led NDA came to power in 2014 and it was supplemented by a BJP led government in Dispur after two years following which the entire region starts witnessing developmental activities, said former Assam chief minister and presently a Union cabinet minister Sarbananda Sonowal.


Speaking to the saffron party workers and also scribes in different locations since he arrived in Guwahati with a three-day schedule for the first time after becoming a member of PM Narendra Modi led Union cabinet once again, Sonowal also added that the landlocked region will witness more welfare and development related works in the coming days.


Mentionable is that the Union ports, shipping & waterways and AYUSH minister arrived in the city for three-day Jan Ashirwad Yatra in Assam on Saturday morning and he was welcomed by State CM Himanta Biswa Sarma and Assam BJP president Bhabesh Kalita along with other party leaders at LGBI airport. Rameshwar Teli, another Union minister from Assam, accompanied Sonowal and both the ministers graced a small rally at Azara.


On the way to city, the visibly popular politician paid a visit to Bharat Ratna Dr Bhupen Hazarika’s Samadhi at Jalukbari locality. Sonowal paid tributes to great Ahom warrior Lachit Barphukan too at Lachit Ghat on the southern bank of mighty river Brahmaputra. A member of the cabinet committee on political affairs also prayed at Maa Kamakhya Devalay for the good health, happiness and prosperity of all.


Sonowal is scheduled to address a number of rallies in the districts of Morigaon, Nagaon, Kaliabar, Jorhat, Sibsagar, etc and culminate his mission for extensive public interactions on Monday at Dibrugarh. During his first public address at Jagiroad, Sonowal offered thanks to PM Modi for inducing five ministers in the Union cabinet from Northeast at a time, which he terms as a sign of extending extra political will to the region.


He criticized the Congress for ignoring the region for decades during its tenures for more than 60 years. During his address, Sonowal praised incumbent CM for bold offensives against the menace of drugs to save the future generation. Sarma, who completed 100 days in office on Friday, expected more from the central government for the benefit of people in Assam as well as Northeast.
