Guwahati: The opposition Asom Gana
Parishad (AGP) on Monday brought out a vision document titled
"Vision 2030 for Assam" in view of the ensuing assembly
election in the state.

Formally releasing the document, party president
Chandra Mohan Patowary said as the AGP represents the
aspirations of state`s regional identities, it had requested
eminent academicians and intellectuals to prepare the vison

Complimenting those who were instrumental in making
the document, Patowary said the party will concentrate on
"people sensitive, sustainable inclusive development for the
people of Assam".

"The vision plan will incorporate all the critical
issues that needs to be addressed with long and short term
measures for ushering in a progressive state", he said.

Lambasting the Congress-led government for its claim
of bringing in development in the state, the AGP president
said the slogan of development was only election oriented.

"Actually there has been no growth and the state`s
per capita income is one of the lowest. We want to emphasise
the need for sustainable growth", Patowary said.

The vision document which includes infiltration,
border issues and agriculture will be incorporated in the
election manifesto of the AGP to be declared soon, he said.
