GUWAHATI, Jan 14: The BJP, Assam Pradesh on Sunday appealed to the government of Assam to reschedule the TET exam date that has been fixed on February 8.
February 8 is a big day for the saffron party with its Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi slated to visit the State and to woo the voters here. Modi will address a public meeting at the veterinary playground, Khanapara and the State BJP is gearing up for the occasion leaving no stone unturned to ensure that every citizen gets a glimpse of its Prime Ministerial candidate.
State BJP president Sarbananda Sonowal while addressing media persons here at the party head office said that the TET candidates might be exposed to a lot of inconvenience as the public vehicles would be recruited in large numbers for the Narendra Modi programme. �We had sought the permission of the authorities quite earlier for Narendra Modi�s programme in Guwahati. Earlier the TET exam was fixed on a different date but recently the government again changed the date to February 8,� said Sonowal observing that this might be a ploy on the part of the government to deprive some of the opportunity to attend the forthcoming meeting.
Sonowal said that this meeting will be a �Mahajagaran Samaroh� with focus on eliminating fear, hunger and corruption from the country. �Assam is awakening to the fact that the only party that can bring transparency and accountability in administration is the BJP,� he added.
It needs to be mentioned here that LCD screens will be put up at various points in the city so that citizens can get a view of Modi even if they are far away from the venue. The party is expecting around 25,000 workers to reach the capital city on the eve of the meeting from all over Assam.
On the other hand, wishing the people of Assam on the occasion of Bhogali Bihu, Sonowal regretted that the Tarun Gogoi government has turned the festival of feasting into a painful experience by giving a free hand to the unscrupulous elements to dictate market prices.
Sonowal pointed out that with the scarcity of LPG cylinders, high price of kerosene and all other essential commodities, Bihu will not bring much cheer for the people.
