The Bharatiya Janata Party National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda on 11 January addressed a massive ‘Vijay Sankalp’ Rally at Silchar in Assam where he discussed in detail the amount of work done and development projects undertaken by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) governments under the dynamic leadership of Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji at the Centre and by Assam Chief Minister Shri Sarbananda Sonowal in the state. The impressive public rally was also addressed by Assam Chief Minister Shri Sarbananda Sonowal and North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) Convenor Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma.
The Bharatiya Janata Party National President said the kind of love, affection and trust people of Assam has showered upon Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji and the BJP it is now certain that the Bharatiya Janata Party will again form the government in Assam with blessings of the people of the State and we will continue with our agenda of growth, development and all round progress of Assam. In the ensuing assembly elections in Assam the Bharatiya Janata Party will win over 100 seats — BJP plus, 100 plus.
The double engine government of the Bharatiya Janata Party under the guidance of Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji and under the dynamic and effective leadership of Shri Sarbananda Sonowal successfully wrote a new chapter of growth, development, progress and prosperity in Assam. The vision of growth and development in Assam was conceived by our Honorable Prime Minister which was implemented and executed in the ground by the BJP government run by Shri Sarbananda Sonowal.
The Narendra Modi government and the Bharatiya Janata Party is strongly committed to preserve and promote the rich cultural heritage and language of Assam. “Kaishmir ho ya Guwahati, Apna Desh Apni Mati” (Be it Kashmir or Guwahati, It’s our nation, it’s our motherland). The vision of growth and development for Assam of our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji has been successfully implemented by the Sarbananda Sonowal government in Assam.
It is the Bharatiya Janata Party government that has given the Scheduled Caste status to six communities of Assam — Koch, Rajbongshi, Tai Ahom, Chutia, Matak, Moraan and Tea Tribes — thus fulfilling their very old demand which the successive Congress governments never fulfilled and blocked it for years. The Bharatiya Janata Party government successfully resolved the complex problems of Bodo agitation and also Bru-Reang issue.
It is the Bharatiya Janata Party government that resolved the big issue of Assam by doing land sweep to end the border problem which was a big problem for the people of the State. Our government successfully and effectively tackled the problem of infiltration through its unique Smart Fans Project thus giving big relief to the people of Assam.
The Congress led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government gave Assam funds worth Rs 50,000 crore for development of Assam. On the other hand the Bharatiya Janata Party government under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji has so far given Rs 3 lakh crores for the fast development and allround progress of Assam.
During the Congress regimes projects used to get started but were never completed, which would lead to massive escalation in costs of various projects. On the other hand the Bharatiya Janata Party government completed several projects in record time including Bhupen Hazarika Setu and Bogeibeel Bridge besides completing the very important Assam Gas Cracker Project.
During the Congress rule people did not know that the were owners of their land. During the first phase in Brahmaputra and Barak Valley we gave ‘patta’ (land ownership documents) to 1.10 lakh people of Assam, while in the second phase land ownership rights will be given to a similar number of people.
In all the elections held in various parts of Assam after 2016 assembly elections the people of the State have always blessed the Bharatiya Janata Party with impressive victories 2016. Be it the elections of Territorial Council, the elections for local bodies or Bye-elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party always emerged victorious. And this is not just true in Assam but in the entire country where people have been blessing the Bharatiya Janata Party.
It was the National Democratic Alliance government led by the Bharatiya Janata Party under the leadership of Honourable Prime Minister Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee which awarded the Bharat Ratna to great Freedom Fighter Gopinath Bordoloi ji. Now again the Bharatiya Janata Party government under the leadership of Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji has awarded the great son of Assam Honorable Bhupen Hazarika ji with the Bharat Ratna.
The Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji gave Assam All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) which is coming up in Guwahati with an expenditure of Rs 1,350 crores, while additional expenses as annual recurring expenditure of Rs 2,000 crores will also come in the running of the prestigious institution. In entire Assam the Bharatiya Janata Party government opened 8 new medical colleges. Recently Honourable Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah ji laid the foundation stone of a new medical college which is coming up at a cost of Rs 835 crores in the state.
The Narendra Modi government also gave Rs 22,000 crores for an oil refinery in Assam and another Rs 12,500 crores for Numaligarh Bio Refinery have also been given. Apart from this the BJP government also constructed 15 new highways, 31 new state highways and 5 new bridges on river Brahmaputra.
The Bharatiya Janata Party government constructed 35 lakh toilets in Assam, opened 1.66 crore Jan Dhan bank accounts, gave 35 lakh cooking gas connections, also gave scooters to girls who passed their 12th standard and bicycles to 2.17 lakh girls who belonged to economically weaker sections of the society. These are not mere scooters or bicycles but a matter of honour and dignity for the girls of the State.
Under the Ayushman Bharat Scheme over 50 crore people are getting benefitted with medical benefits, and out of these 50 crore beneficiaries 1.11 lakh people from Assam have already got benefitted on whose medical care the Narendra Modi government has spent Rs 163 crores.
In the Bharatiya Janata Party government the people who were misled and had taken illegal and anti social path have surrendered before the law and once again joined the national mainstream. In the Congress government a large number of people from Assam used to fall in the trap of human trafficking. Now this issue has been effectively tackled by the Sarbananda Sonowal government and has saved people of the State from falling into the trap of human traffickers.
During the Congress regimes over 15 years in Assam as many as 2,000 civilians and around 284 security personnel had to lose their lives in various cases of terrorism and violence. Around 1200 people were kidnapped. Similarly around 51% people of the State used to live without electricity in Assam. Now all this has changed as the Bharatiya Janata Party government in Assam under the leadership of Chief Minister Shri Sarbananda Sonowal and under the guidance of Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji has written a new chapter of growth, development, peace and prosperity in the state.
During the Corona pandemic Assam Chief Minister Shri Sarbananda Sonowal and the state’s Health Minister Shri Himanta Biswa Sarma successfully developed unique Community Surveillance System, and the result of this is that today Assam has a very low fatality rate due to Covid-19 disease.
