GUWAHATI: If the Congress comes to power in the 2021 then one member from every family will be appointed for a job, said APCC (Assam Pradesh Congress Committee) president Ripun Bora on Wednesday.
Addressing a joint programme at Manabendra Sarma Complex at Dispur, Bora underlined that the Congress Party will give Rs 7,500 every month to every poor family and also waive off the farmer, education, and women's microfinance loans. He said that a member from each family will get a job opportunity.
"The BJP-led government has betrayed the people of Assam. Granting ST status to six communities was an election promise which they have not yet fulfilled. However, they have grant autonomous council to three communities. The government said that it will dredge the Brahmaputra river and construct an express highway on both the sides of the river. These were false promises," said Bora.
He said the per head income has decreased, unemployment has increased and during the lockdown every household was economically affected. But the government has not taken necessary steps.
Bora opined that for the development of the people, schemes are important. The Congress implemented 133 schemes for the development of the people when it was in power. But this government has only announced the schemes to loot the people, Bora alleged.
"The government said, under the Orunudoi scheme it will provide Rs 830 to the people. But, it is not possible to run a family with such amount. In the last Lok Sabha elections, the Congress party announced a scheme in the election manifesto namely Nyuntam Aay Yojana (Nyay). Under the scheme every poor family would have received Rs 7,500 monthly. If we come to power, this scheme will be implemented in Assam," Bora added.
It is to be mentioned that hundreds of people from various strata joined the party in the programme. Ex BJP MLA from Doomdooma Dilip Moran, former AASU leader Niranjan Nath, and various artistes from the State joined the party in their quest for a political career.
