Donkamukam, June 20: Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) CEM Tuliram Ronghang on Wednesday said that under the BJP government, the poorest of the poor people of Karbi Anglong had benefitted. “During the rule of the previous Congress government, nothing much had come from the Centre and State for the uplift of the poor people of Karbi Anglong and so no development for the poor took place.

He further said that soon wooden bridges would be converted into RCC bridges in the district. He also said proudly that under his leadership, in the last MAC election the opposition had been totally wiped out. In the Vikas Utsav, ducklings and chicken were distributed to the SHGs ceremoniously and mosquito nets were also given to selected families.
