The meeting was presided over by State president of the party Ranjit Kumar Dass.

Mahendra Singh said: “We’ve our governments both at Dispur and the Centre. This has given us ample opportunities to take the schemes to the doors of the target beneficiaries. This is the duty of the government, and equally ours as well.”

The party is also going to observe the foundation of the party from April 6 to 13 and completion of a year of the government right from block-level. “We’re confident of winning the Dhemaji bye-poll,” Dass said, and added that he himself would camp at Dhemaji for seven days before the poll.
