The State government's flagship scheme Swami Vivekananda Assam Youth Empowerment (Re- SVAYEM) was launched on Wednesday in Barpeta district. Assam Minister for Transport, Industry & Commerce Chandra Mohan Patowary, ceremonially launched the scheme along with State BJP president and Sorbhog MLA Ranjit Kumar Das. Re-SVAYEM is a flagship programme to provide financial support to the youths of Assam to take up income generating activities in the manufacturing, trading, and services sectors.
On the sidelines of the event, responding to a query about Assam Congress president Ripun Bora's comment about the grand alliance being a Tsunami, the Assam BJP president said, "People will vote again for BJP because they are satisfied. They can never intimidate and prevent our party's success, the hard work of our members. BJP party resembles the waves present in deep-sea while Congress and other parties are just like the waves near a beach, they come for a short moment. These parties are no big issue as the blessing of all the people of Assam are with BJP. BJP+ = 100+. BJP will be a huge success in Assam again. Congress and its alliance parties will be destroyed in their own so-called 'Tsunami'. The alliance of Congress and AIUDF is like an alliance with snake and mongoose and it is sure that AIUDF will ultimately destroy Congress. In this alliance, Congress will ultimately become a big 'Zero'".
