Earlier, CM Sarma addressed huge gatherings at Nagaon Dawson HS School playground and said the environment in Nagaon has changed, and the wind flows in favour of BJP candidate Suresh Bora in the constituency this time. The huge crowds in the playground apparently proved it, CM Sarma asserted, pointing at the large crowds.

Taking a dig at the Opposition Congress, CM Sarma said that Congress turned into an old, obsolete currency note with which nothing could be purchased in the market, and currently, people could realise that.

Following the event, te chief minister, along with BJP candidate Suresh Bora, minister Pijush Hazarika, MLAs – Rupak Sarma, Jitu Goswami, and other district BJP portfolios, participated in a huge roadshow taken out from Dawson School playground to the Office of the District Commissioner, Nagaon.
