DUDHNAI: In the view of the upcoming assembly elections 2021, Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) general secretary and former minister Pronay Rabha visited many remote villages under 36 no. Dudhnai Assembly Constituency along the Assam-Meghalaya border on Thursday.
Suneet P Marak, convener of APCC Tribal Department, Mukul Rabha, secretary of Goalpara DCC, and other leaders took part in the programme. Pronay Rabha and his team first visited Torengthop village weekly market. In the newly-set up weekly market, people of the area discussed their problems with him. After that, they visited Khardang Sarakpara, Ginokgre and Pahampara Dabli villages and attended public meets.
During the meetings, the Garo tribal villagers spoke about the problems which they were facing like road development, hospital facilities and the long-pending demand of Garo Autonomous Council (GAC) for the all-round development of the Garo people living in Assam.
Regarding GAC, Suneet P Marak, convener of APCC Tribal Department, alleged that the BJP government had always deprived the Garo tribal community. Even though Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal had met Garo delegates twice, he never talked about GAC, said Marak.
Pronay Rabha said that the BJP government had failed to run the country successfully. The economy of the country was in a poor state and the government was only selling public enterprises like railways and airports to the private sector. He urged the people to cast their votes in favour of the Congress in the upcoming election.
