Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma is all set to release a book that will be showcasing his days which he spent in his office as a CM.
The book named ''Chief Minister Dairy'' will also apprise people about the events of the Himanta Biswa Sarma-led BJP government in the first year.
While speaking to the media on the same, Sarma said, ''The book will have details of how the office of chief minister and government functioned in the last one year''.
''It's an attempt to minimize the distance between people and government,'' he added.
Interestingly, the book will show a glimpse of how the government functions making them more aware of government working.
Notably, events like eviction drive, Assam Cattle Preservation Bill, and drug drive as well as dealing with corruption in the state are likely to find its place in the book.
Interestingly, the year 2021 witnessed resounding popularity among the public of Assam, replacing the former Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal and vouching for a new chief minister in the face of Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma.
However, since the new formation of the government or most of the pre-election period the state has been in the driver's seat when it comes to COVID management or implementation of policies and acts.
An eviction drive in Sipajhar in Assam's Darrang district took a violent turn, leaving two dead and several injured after clashes broke out between the police and protesters. A horrifying video showed a protester armed with a lathi being shot by a policeman, then jumped on and stomped on by a civilian. Meanwhile, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has also instituted a judicial probe into the deaths, and the civilian has been arrested.
Apart from these, social media has been abuzz with the success of Assam in dealing with the drugs menace in recent days.
The Assam Police has launched an all-out offensive on drugs. Over thousands of people, including women drug traffickers, have been arrested across the state, and narcotics worth crores of rupees seized from them while a few also shot at in encounter.
The ongoing crackdown has also unearthed a well-oiled drug trafficking network, which spreads from India's Northeast to the rest of the country, and probably beyond.
The Assam government has amended a section Assam Cattle Preservation Bill, 2021 to allow transportation of cattle from one district to another, which was barred earlier, informed Ashok Singhal, State Cabinet Minister.
"Cattle Bill has been amended to allow transportation of cattle from one district to another, though it will not be allowed in districts having an international border," said Singhal.
