SILCHAR, Dec 27 - Despite previous assurances of setting up of a 200-seater BPO yet to see the light of the day in Silchar and a certain decline in the momentum of Swaccha Bharat campaign in the region, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has reiterated its assurance of maintaining a parity in the development spree of Barak and Brahmaputra valleys.
BJP state general secretary and Silchar MP Dr Rajdeep Roy on Sunday informed reporters that the assurance made by Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari on setting up of the Multimodal Logistics Park (MMLP) and two more bridges over river Barak will soon be materialised.
� The state executive meet in Karimganj has been largely successful as all our members and over 80 percent of district presidents spoke their minds on issues concerning the organisation. State president Ranjeet Kumar Dass had visited major locations of southern Assam for nine days and our workers are motivated and ready to toil hard for the Mission 100+ seats in the Assembly election. We are confident that seven seats of Cachar district will be driven home,� Dr Roy claimed.
He was quick to respond to the question on BPO and Swaccha Bharat Mission saying, �I had spoke to Union Minister of Law and IT Ravi Shankar Prasad on the issue of BPO here and he has assured that it is open for investors while the Government will provide all assistance for its operation here. Swaccha Bharat Mission in Silchar is a matter of concern for which we shall chalk out fresh initiative soon. Regarding dredging of river Barak, if required, fresh efforts will be made for the ships to reach via the riverway. We are hopeful to address these issues soon.�
The Silchar MP informed that efforts are also being made for selection of land for the much needed new airport in Silchar and the Government is committed to facilitating the development objectives.
On Amit Shah�s visit to the state, Dr Roy said that the Minister has given us a blueprint for the 2021 Assembly election. On the new entrants into the party and also the sitting legislators in the context of poll tickets, the party general secretary said, �anyone who believes in the ideology of the BJP is welcome, but there is no guarantee of being greeted with poll tickets.�
