GUWAHATI, Jan 28 � An additional package of Rs 1000 crore would be announced for urban civic bodies if the Congress party is voted to power in the municipal polls that begin on February 9, said Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi in his capacity as the leader of the Congress Legislative Party (CLP) today.

Gogoi also exuded confidence that his party would fare better than last time and added that he is thinking beyond the concept of 'smart cities' to achieve a holistic development.

He told media persons at the party headquarters that in the last five years nearly Rs 500 crore had been released for the execution of various welfare schemes in the state through the civic bodies, the highest ever.

�This time if we are voted to power, we plan to increase the package of Rs 1,000 crore in the next five years,� Gogoi said.

�Unlike our predecessors, we gave top priority to the improvement of civic amenities. We also managed to streamline the functioning of municipal boards and town committees and even approved salaries at par with the Government of Assam scale for the employees of the urban civic bodies,� Gogoi said.

In a bid to highlight the achievements of his party, Gogoi said, �We are thinking beyond building smart cities. We want even the smaller towns to be smart.�

Low income groups like rickshaw pullers and push cart pullers, besides the homeless would be covered under special welfare schemes, Gogoi said.

President of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee Anjan Dutta and Minister Ajanta Neog were also present on the occasion.
