Chief Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma should perform ‘Rajdharma’ and give same assurance of development to all opposition MLA’s as given to Sri Akhil Gogoi , MLA of Sibsagar and deter from
employing tactics of division among opposition MLAs.
After taking oath as Chief Minister, Dr Sarma had not only passed derogatory remarks on opposition MLAs but also created the illusion that development of constituencies under opposition MLAs would not be equal to those of the ruling party, thereby forcing many opposition MLAs to defect to the BJP promising more development and also imposed an unnecessary bye- election on the people of Assam last month. It was apparent from the election speeches by the Chief Minister and the MLA candidates who joined the ruling party after defecting from the opposition camp, that development of constituencies was possible only if the MLA belonged to the ruling party. It was even mentioned during the joining of an opposition MLA in the ruling party that he was not given time to discuss the development of his constituency as he belonged to the opposition.
Congress spoke person Bobbeeta Sharma also told we saw yesterday that Akhil Gogoi Raijor Dol oppostion MLA from Sivasagar Constituency had an hour long discussion with the CM to talk about the development of his constituency. We appreciate that the Chief Minister of Assam has given time to Raijor Dol opposition MLA Gogoi and has given assurance that development projects of Sivasagar Constituency will be carried forward as promised by Sri Gogoi during election.
CM is entrusted with the responsibility of development in 126 constituencies of the state. Hence it is expected that he should give the same assurance of development in the other opposition MLA constituencies .
