bbbbb "Freedom is set to become more meaningful for the citizens of the eight sister States"- Written by Chief Minister of Assam Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma
09 May, 2022
As I sit down to write this piece, the Assam Assembly is in session. Many important and transformational pieces of legislation are being passed. Some are regulatory, but most of them relate to the developmental agenda of the State, to take Assam among the top five states of the country in the next five years. I have completed more than three decades in public life. I have been blessed with multiple opportunities to work for the people of the North-east — Assam in particular — in various capacities. Many milestones have been achieved. Many challenges remain — some very critical, given the unique geography of the region. However, I am convinced that most of our disabilities emanate from historical and legacy factors which have hindered our growth.

VVVVVV 'How BJP won four states' - Written by Chief Minister of Assam Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma
09 May, 2022
At the outset, I would like to compliment my fellow karyakartas, party leaders and fellow chief ministers for the BJP’s spectacular victory in the recently concluded assembly polls. I have been asking myself what could have led us to this historic victory. The year 2014 has been a watershed moment in the history of Indian polity. A new model of administrative structure and governance that puts people at the heart of its delivery was introduced that year. The outcomes of the recently concluded assembly elections are a testimony that the Modi model of governance has provided a recipe for the BJP’s success across the country. The narrative constructed by opinion makers that the Modi factor is a force to reckon with only in the Lok Sabha elections and does not have much of a relevance in state polls has led to many miscalculations by opposition parties. The myth of anti-incumbency and caste-based experiments have not worked for them: Voters voted unanimously for governance and development. These results have questioned the conventional political wisdom and have decisively debunked the petty politics that does not have good governance at its core.
