GUWAHATI: In the run-up to Tiwa Autonomous Council (TA) election on December 17, Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal addressed an election rally at Sonapur in Kamrpu (Metro) district on Tuesday.
In his speech, Sonowal highlighted the welfare schemes and achievements of the BJP-led governments both at centre and state. He also lambasted the Congress party for widespread corruption and anomalies during its governance.
“Congress has ruled for 55 years. During their reign, they misappropriated funds of various rural schemes. Therefore, they failed to provide social security and rights to the people,” the chief minister took on Congress.
“With the bold steps and universal policies of honourable PM Narendra Modi, every family in Assam as well as India is marching towards the progress,” he added.
Along with CM Sarbananda Sonowal, Guwahati MP Queen Oja, Dispur MLA Atul Bora, Diphu MP Haren Singh Bey and a host of top BJP leaders were also present in the election rally.
