Sarma makes comparison between Meghalaya, Assam

Addressing four public meetings at Mahendraganj, Rongjeng, Mendipathar and Kharkutta, Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma drew the crowd’s attention to the speed of execution of central government schemes in Assam vis-a-vis Meghalaya.

SHILLONG:

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, on February 18, participated in election rallies held in Garo Hills in support of BJP candidates while making an appeal to voters to choose the party.

Addressing four public meetings at Mahendraganj, Rongjeng, Mendipathar and Kharkutta,  the Assam chief minister drew the crowd’s attention to the speed of execution of central government schemes in Assam vis-a-vis Meghalaya.

Taking a swipe at the state government, Sarma said schemes had benefited very few families in Meghalaya as compared to Assam.

Sarma urged voters to bring BJP into power in the state for these schemes to reach them as corruption from in-between will be removed.

He also told the crowd that if BJP comes to power, the party will bring in schemes similar to

Assam’s Arunodoy scheme where an unmarried or elderly woman from a BPL family receives Rs 1200 every month.

Trying to flex on the ‘success’ of BJP government in Assam, Sarma went on to say that the party had promised to give employment  to one lakh youths last year and have succeeded to provide appointments to 50,000 while the remaining will be done before May this year.

He added that the youth of Meghalaya are reeling under the burden of unemployment and only the BJP can bring sustainable development that will create employment in the state.
