Sonowal appealed to all the party members of the constituency to power 187 booth offices of Khowang and told people about the “decade of good governance of the Narendra Modi government” and how “multiple welfare schemes by the Government have reached the ultimate beneficiaries improving people’s quality of lives.”
Speaking on the occasion, the senior leader of BJP, Sarbananda Sonowal said, “Our party workers are our biggest support system. Your energy and enthusiasm will ensure ‘Ab Ki Baar, 400 Paar,’ heralding the third term for the most successful, dynamic, and inspiring Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji.”
“You know how the schemes of the double-engine BJP govts have helped people and improved their quality of life. You are from the Khowang society, hence, you must take the responsibility to make people aware of the good work that the Modi government has done in the last decade and gather public support,” said Sonowal.
He further requested saying, “It is my humble request to all of you that for the next 30 days, under the leadership of Khowang MLA, Chakradhar Gogoi, you commit to this cause in all the 187 booths of Khowang.”
He said that we must not stoop to the petty mudslinging political commentary endorsed by the opposition and defeat them with sound arguments aloud with facts and results in the ultimate court of the public.
Appreciating Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said that under his leadership, India has prospered, and so has Assam.
“Today, the poor, the marginalised and the middle class have been reaping the benefits of various welfare schemes launched by the NDA govts that were launched with only one objective – public welfare. People from all sections of society, be it women, self-help groups, farmers, tea workers, retailers, youth, children, senior citizens, homemakers and so on,” said Sonowal.
He further added that we will take this as our core strength and ensure that the vision of ‘Viksit Assam in a Viksit Bharat’ remains on track uninterrupted.
Criticising Congress, the BJP candidate for the Dibrugarh Lok Sabha constituency, Sarbananda Sonowal, said, “Congress has done nothing but let down people for more than six decades. Imagine how Bogibeel Bridge, which has opened up so much of avenues for people of not just the adjoining districts but for the whole region, remained neglected under Congress-led governments.”
He further hailed the PM, “When Modi ji became Prime Minister, he ensured that this important project was done at the earliest. And, here it is today, standing tall, transforming the transportation of the region, bringing the much-needed convenience for the people to commute, unlock opportunities. Even the roads in the villages of Khowang were built, which remained a distant dream under Congress governments.”
He lashed out at the Congress party saying that six decades of misrule by the Congress failed meekly in front of one decade of good governance under Narendra Modi ji. “Under the Congress government, people of the North Bank felt particularly left out and were ignored for decades. From Jonai to Dhubri, nothing much was done to ease public transportation and improve the quality of life,” he added.
Elaborating on the initiatives taken under the BJP government, he said, “Since Modi ji became Prime Minister in 2014, as many as 8 new bridges over Brahmaputra have been approved and are under different stages of development. This is what ‘Modi Ki Guarantee’ delivers. It is ironic but Assam failed to get much out of Congress rule, even though it sent the Prime Minister of the Congress-led UPA govt to Rajya Sabha.”
Calling the Congress tenure, a “dark era”, he said that the basic issues of the state like peace, prosperity, and progress remained ignored during the Congress-led UPA govt. Whatever the opposition says, they are hand in glove with the Congress, and people will not tolerate their misdeeds that crippled Assam.
He emphasised that India under Congress was marred with corruption, dynastic politics, and communal politics which weakened the nation. “Today, these dark elements of politics have been obliterated, and in their place, a new brand of politics of progress and development has taken place. This is the change that Modiji has delivered,” he added.
The Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal was joined by Chakradhar Gogoi, MLA, Moran; Ujjwal Kashyap, Dibrugarh District President of BJP; Ranjit Baruah, Prabhari, Khowang Constituency; Khirod Duwara of Khowang Mandal; Jatin Gogoi of Borboruah mandal among other leaders and members of BJP were present
