Cong-BPF rally highlights Govt achievements

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, July 18 � The joint rally of the ruling Congress and the BPF, the �Janajagaran Yaatra� held here on Sunday was nothing short of an election campaign as it glorified the achievements of the government and lambasted the Opposition, particularly targeting the AGP and BJP for creating the din over irrelevant issues like �NC Hills scam� and carrying out a false propaganda against the government.

The meeting, which was held in the Khanapara Veterinary College field and attended by senior leaders of the Congress party, ministers and MLAs and BPF leaders, criticized the AGP, BJP, and the AIUDF describing these opposition parties in no hidden terms as �opportunist and hungry for power.�

APCC president Bhubaneshwar Kalita who addressed the gathering said that the Congress and the BPF would usher a new age in the State by resolving all the major problems plaguing the State since long. He rubbished aside the issues raised by the opposition describing them as absurd and an attempt on the part of the opposition to mislead the people.

�The Congress has strengthened democracy at the grassroots and has been undertaking different welfare schemes for all sections of the society,� he said, claiming that the people of the State have realized which political party can safeguard them.

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi who was also present at the rally announced some sops including constituting a development council for the farmers. He also assured a CBI inquiry into fund embezzlement in the Mising autonomous council.

Gogoi said that the Janajagaran Yaatra was a journey to win the people�s heart.

Gogoi then warned the Opposition, particularly the AGP, to desist from carrying out a false propaganda against the government and without mincing words predicted that the AGP would fare miserably in the coming Assembly elections if it continues with its propaganda war.

Announcing that the Congress will sweep the coming Assembly elections, Gogoi said that the AGP was born through betrayal for grabbing power, while the Congress was born to serve the people.

Referring to the past, Gogoi recalled that in 1980, the present-day AGP leaders turned down the offer of the late Indira Gandhi to resolve the issue of the Assam agitation disagreeing with the terms, but the same leaders signed the agreement in 1985 accepting the same conditions.

�The journey of betrayal of the AGP leaders started since then and is continuing till now,� said Gogoi, adding that the AGP has betrayed the people even on the foreigners� issue. Gogoi further reminded AGP leader Chandra Mohan Patowary that his party has been left without any issues now.

Gogoi said that the BJP whenever it was in power took a step-motherly attitude towards Assam.

Bhumidhar Barman in his address called upon the people to compare the AGP�s rule with the Congress and give their mandate in the coming Assembly elections.

Earlier, Congress members assembled at Dispur Last Gate and marched towards the veterinary ground under the leadership of Bhubaneshwar Kalita and other senior leaders of the party.
