“Whether it is health or education or employment generation, during the regime of the congress govt. the state has got a facelift in every sector. Today we have among a few states in India to declare 80% dearness allowance. By successfully holding the panchayat poll, we have decentralized power by not letting it confined to Dispur but carrying it to the grass root level. Despite all our achievements there is a section of people who seemed to be blind to all the positive aspects of our governance but spend their energies in criticizing and burning our effigies. Let them continue with their business of criticism and we shall devote ourselves in achieving and fulfilling all the better and brighter prospects for our state.
