SILCHAR, Aug 2: “Development and Congress are synonymous terms. Here, people have voted for Congress because of the party’s popularity and promises that it had kept. I am happy because of the people’s belief in me and my party”, said Rajdeep Goala, MLA, Lakhipur constituency, at the iuguration of GP by-election Congress office, Lakhipur, on Sunday.

After the iuguration of the office, another meeting was held at achghar, Lakhipur tea garden which was presided over by Monojit Das, president Binkandie Block Congress. He requested the persons present to vote for Satyawati Kamai, Congress candidate. He said, “She is an experienced, active, popular, able and efficient person. Voting for her will imply voting for development. Rajdeep Goala expressed his hopes that people from every communities, tea garden, Rongmei, Muslims, Manipuris, Bengalis and Hindi speaking people will vote for her.

Rajdeep Goala also stated that all the 10 members in the Binkandie GP are from the Congress and if BJP wins, it will not be beneficial for BJP. He emphasized on the point that during his regime, Congress was it its best and the party could do what other parties failed to. “For decades, people have been voting for Congress because they know that only Congress can deliver to fulfill people’s expectations”, he added to say. Throwing light on some of the major issues, he said, “The abnormal price rise reflects BJP’s failure in delivering and thus the party has lost its popularity here. There is also corruption in the matters related to food security. Most of the dealers and shopkeepers are selling rice at more than Rs.2 per kg and it is becomes costly for the poor folks to afford it.”

Rajdeep Goala assured that he would call for a meeting with the members of Barak Cha Shramik Union for discussing the various problems faced by Dilkhush tea garden, Bhuvan Valley tea estate and other estates.
