Guwahati: BJP president Nitin Gadkari
released his party`s `Vision Document 2025` for Assam on Wednesday,
five days before the first phase of Assembly elections in the
state.

future, we have prepared the Vision Document incorporating the
aspirations of the people here for an `Assam of our Dreams`",

"Plenty of funds come from the Centre to Assam and the
Northeast, but the development here is not matching. Poverty
is still there, unemployment is increasing, while the law and
order situation needs to be improved," Gadkari said.

"Development of industry and agriculture are necessary
for development. For industry there has to be power, water,
transport and communication," he pointed out.

The document had a vision of the year 2025 for
agriculture, infrastructure, industrial, rural, urban,
transportation, mineral wealth, power, tribal welfare, tea
industry development, Gadkari said.
Stating the document concentrated on 35 sectors, he
said, "It will be a guideline for the BJP when we form the
government at the Centre".

Prepared with suggestions, views and opinions of the
public, the document was on what should be achieved in a given
period of time and how it is to be achieved, he said.
