Assam: While campaigning in Thowra on Tuesday, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma made another interesting dig at the opposition parties as the heat of the by-election campaign heats up in Assam.
Using the purchase of a cow as an example, the Chief Minister stated that one should always purchase a cow that produces milk.
What the Assam Chief Minister said?
“Congress has no government in the state so no milk can be produced, Raijor Dal’s Government is nowhere to be found so no matter how hard you milk, you will not get anything. On the other hand, you can get 26 litres of milk by milking BJP” the Chief Minister added.
Sarma went on to say that the controversial Cattle Protection Bill has yet to be enacted.“People still are not aware what’s actually in the bill, yet they can’t back out from negative publicity”, he said.
According to the Chief Minister, no other party’s leaders have showed as much concern for dairy farmers as the BJP’s.
Because of the colourful attires worn by our esteemed women folk, I felt as if I was viewing a garden from above while looking from my chopper.
He expressed his gratitude for their presence at the occasion, which he described as “wonderful traditional dress.”
What he explains
The Chief Minister went on to explain that there isn’t much to consider when voting in the by-elections because the governments in Dispur and Delhi will remain in place until 2026 and 2024, respectively. The BJP and Mitrajut will be in power.
““There are two types of elections- Generals nd By elections. The General elections that held few months back decides the changes in the governments. For the by-elections, the government remains the same. Only the people can vote and choose MLAs for their respective constituencies. There is not much to think about voting”, he said while elaborating while stressing that BJP is the ruling party in the state as well as at the centre.
Sarma went on to say that instead of the Brahmaputra, progress would flood the West Panidehing area, which includes Mising, Deori, and Sonowal kochari. He told them that all of their problems would be resolved.
By- election to the Assam Legislative Assembly, 2021 will be held on October 30, 2021 in the five LACs –28 Gossaigaon, 41 Bhabanipur, 58 Tamulpur, 101 Mariani and 107 Thowra Legislative Assembly Constituencies.
Defending the Cow Protection Bill
Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and the ruling BJP defended the proposed cow protection bill in Assam on Monday, saying beef should not be consumed in areas where Hindus dwell and the bovine is venerated.
During a debate in the Assam Assembly on a vote of thanks on the Governor’s address, the opposition AIUDF expressed concern that the proposed bill might incite mob lynchings similar to those seen in northern India’s “cow belt.”
