Even as the common people have been hit very hard by rising prices with increasing fuel prices burning a hole in the Aam Aadmi’s pockets, the AIUDF seems to be least concerned about the sufferings of the people. AIUDF MLAs are more concerened at spending time at gym and swimming pool as they raised a shocking demand during the second day of the ongoing Autumn Session of the Assam Assembly, petitioning Assembly Speaker Hitendra Nath Goswami and demanding the construction of a gym and a swimming pool within the assembly complex and MLA hostel.
AIUDF MLAs submitted a petition to Speaker Hitendra Nath Goswami demanding a gym and a swimming pool so that they can keep themselves “fit and healthy”.
“We have submitted a petition for the construction of a state-of-the art gym and a swimming pool at the assembly complex,” AIUDF MLAs Aminul Islam and Abdur Rahim Ajmal told reporters.
The two AIUDF MLAs further appealed other legislators to support their demand.
Meanwhile, people have expressed shock and dismay at the AIUDF’s gym and swimming pool demand and said they should be more concerned about the well-being of the people and to play the role of a conscious opposition party that raises issues of the people rather than thinking about their own health and fitness.
“It’s simply shocking that our legislators are concerned about their health and fitness. The demand for a gym and swimming pool exclusively for them is unacceptable considering the steep rise in prices,” Anil Sharma, a resident of Guwahati, told News Live.
