GUWAHATI: Assam’s health and circle of relatives welfare minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Friday said that facing the anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act movement used to be critical and challenging for every karyakartas of the state BJP.
Addressing the first executive assembly of the BJP’s state unit held at Srimanta Sankaradeva Kalakshetra located at Panjabari Road, here, Sarma, who could also be the convenor of the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) said, “All over the anti-CAA movement, each and every karyakartas had to undergo a difficult and critical situation. Situation used to be equally hard to take care of the floods in addition to the Covid-19 pandemic.”
On the other hand, Sarma said, “The karyakartas’ attitude of selfless services and products and dedication could win the hearts of the people of Assam. I strongly imagine, the karyakartas will handle this spirit.”
Stressing that the BJP-led state government has been relatively successful in neutralising the communal conflicts prevailed earlier in the state, Sarma said, “We have entirely transformed the communal conflicts into coordination and cooperation among more than a few ethnic communities and indigenous tribes during the last four and half years. In consequence, Bodos are no more shouting for divide Assam 50:50. The Karbis, Dimasas, Misings and other tribes no more carry sense alienation.”
He stressed that this regained socio-cultural and political assimilation has helped the BJT-led state government in rebuilding peace and concord. “This regained peace and coexistence has categorically helped our government in materialising developmental projects,” Sarma observed.
The NEDA convenor also added that decentralisation of more than a few mega development projects rolled out across the state, regardless of the hills and plains, also helped the BJP winning millions’ hearts in the state.
