Chaygaon: Congress MP Rahul
Gandhi on Tuesday urged people to make Tarun Gogoi the Chief
Minister of Assam for the third consecutive term so that he
could continue with the good work of peace and development
initiated during the last ten years.
``Assam will benefit if Gogoiji is returned to power
as he will continue taking the process of development and
peace forward``, Gandhi said while addressing a campaign rally
for Rekibuddin Ahmed, the party`s candidate for Chaygaon
assembly constituency in Kamrup(Rural) district.
In Assam, the Congress is ruling since 2001 and in
Delhi since 2004 and ``where ever the party is in power, it
follows the rule of providing a government of the common
people, poor and backward``.
``Ten years ago when the AGP was in power in the state
there was neither peace nor development and it claimed that
there could be no development without peace but during the
last ten years, Gogoiji has brought both peace and development
in Assam``, he added.
During the AGP rule, government employees did not get
their salaries, there was no road and the growth rate was only
two per cent but in the last ten years, the Congress
government has not only ensured payment of salaries on time
for government employees but also constructed 25,000 km of
roads and eight per cent of economic growth has been achieved,
``We don`t work for poor alone but for all sections of
the people and there are some parties which indulge in a
politics of division by extending help to only a section of
the people``, he said.
