Are DC sahab ye kya natak hai? Kyu gari rukwaya hai? Koi raja-maharaja aa raha hai kya? Aisa mat karo aage. Logo ko kasht ho raha hai. Gari jane do (What is this drama DC sahab? Why the vehicles are stopped? Is a king coming here? This should not happen again. People are suffering. Let the vehicles go),” a visibly angry CM Sarma told Nagaon deputy commissioner.

Following the incident, the chief minister said that the state government wants to create a culture where DC, SP or any government servant or public representative will work only for the people.

“In our state, we want to create a culture where DC, SP or any government servant, public rep-irrespective of background, intellectual capacity or popularity will work only for the people. Changing babu mindset is tough, but we are determined to achieve our goal-Janta hi Janardhan,” Assam CM added.

Further, Sarma told the bus drivers to continue the traffic movement on the road.
