Congress doesn’t have any scheme: Himanta Biswa Sarma


GUWAHATI: “Congress doesn’t have any scheme. In the last 15 years, they were only distributing dhotis and lungis,” senior BJP leader and Assam finance minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma remarked at an election rally at Sadia on Thursday.

Hitting out at the Congress party, Sarma said there is no benefit of voting for the grand old party.

“BJP government has provided free admission, free textbooks to students. Around 58 lakh families are getting 35 KG rice free. We have given old age, widow pensions, SVAYEM and so many,” Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma said.

He also asserted that there is no similar scheme like Orunodoi in other parts of India. Orunodoi provides Rs. 830 per month to the each eligible beneficiary.

Taking a dig at Jagadish Bhuyan, the  Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) candidate in Sadia, the senior BJP leader said, “People like Jagadish Buyan can give you nothing. We have proved only Narendra Modi and BJP government can work for the people of Assam.”

BJP has fielded Bolin Chetia as its candidate in the Sadia constituency.
