GUWAHATI, Sept 2: The BJP Assam Pradesh has said that the Sarbanda Sonowal-led BJP government at Dispur is sailing through as expected.

Talking to newsmen in the city today, State BJP spokesperson Rupam Goswami said: “In the first 100 days in office, Chief Minister Sarbanda Sonowal’s pledge to make Assam free from foreigners, corruption and pollution has been reflected largely, disarraying the Opposition parties that are out to defame the government.”

According to Goswami, the issue of price rise has, however, created ripples in the State. “Dispur has done much to check rise in prices of essential commodities in the State. The prices of many commodities are more in Delhi than in Assam. If the people of Assam stagger under high prices, Dispur should take more steps to bring it down. We hope the State government will take measures to check the rise in prices the way it acted against syndicates and corruption soon after coming to power at Dispur. The State Government has much to do. The problem lies in the fact that the previous government did precious little over the years in the past to make the State self-reliant. We’ve to import everything from outside.”

Enumerating a few of the deeds of the BJP-led government in the State in its first 100 days in office, Goswami said: “Soon after assuming charge the Chief Minister has cut the size of his convoy, done away with deafening sirens, done away with the system of holding interviews for filling up third and fourth posts, hiked dearness allowance, laid stress on NRC update, acted promptly to give a succour to flood-affected people of the State in the recent floods even by halting the State Budget session, regularised 7,500 TET teachers, made arrangement for the appointment of 11,000 other teachers, got the release of Rs 1,450 crore oil royalty, declared Majuli as a district, given free of cost admission to 60,000 poor students into colleges and higher secondary schools in the State, extended Rs 5 lakh to each of the martyrs families, hiked the amounts and number of beneficiaries of literary and artiste pension, etc.”
