“I’m grateful to chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for giving me the opportunity and having faith in me. I can give you all the assurance that I will do my best for Assam,” GP Singh told reporters in Guwahati after the announcement came.

“As per the direction of the chief minister, we have proceeded at a pace for the last one and half years. Also, we will continue to work towards the goal of our chief minister to make Assam one of the top five states in the country.”
