GUWAHATI, June 23: With the nearly clean sweep by the BJP in the just-held Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) election by bagging 24 of the 26 constituencies in the council area the State BJP is elated. The Opposition Congress drew blank in the poll.

The BJP said that that the Congress had to be wiped out in the hill district for its corruption.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Sarbanda Sonowal expressed his gratitude to the people of Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong for their overwhelming support to the BJP.

In a press statement, Sonowal said that the mandate of KAAC voters in favour of the BJP testified the persistent faith of the people of the hilly districts towards the rendra Modi-led NDA government at the Centre and the Assam Government. The Chief Minister further said that the Government of Assam from the very beginning has been working for ensuring safety and security as well as equal development of the people. The new KAAC under the BJP will unleash a new era of development and security in the two hilly districts, the Chief Minister said.

Sonowal also thanked the people of Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong for ensuring peaceful poll in both the districts. Noteworthy that after 1952 for the first time election to the Council was held so peacefully in the hill districts.

Meanwhile, State BJP president Ranjit Kumar Dass also thanked the people of Karbi Anglong for their historic mandate to the BJP. “In the past 65 years under the Congress and the ASDC the development in the hill district came to a grinding halt because of corruption. The Congress had to draw blank in the hill district for corruption and cheating the poor of their benefits,” he said. The party is going to take the decision on the Chief Executive Member (CEM) to head the KAAC.
