Ronghang highlighted the developmental initiatives implemented and underway by the BJP government.


He also mentioned the Arunoodoi scheme, providing Rs 1,250 monthly to women, the health scheme under Ayushman Bharat, offering free medical treatment up to Rs 5 lakh annually, and the provision of free LPG gas cylinders to beneficiaries.

“The Congress and APHLC do not hold government positions, neither at the Centre nor in the state. A party without governance cannot facilitate development. By voting for the BJP, you will continue to experience progress. Therefore, there’s no need to support the Congress and APHLC, as they cannot ensure development,” Ronghang stated while addressing a gathering during an election rally held at Deithor under the Duar-bagori Member of Autonomous Council (MAC) constituency in the Bokajan LA constituency.


He was campaigning for BJP candidate Amarsing Tisso, contesting from the 6 – Diphu (ST) Parliamentary Constituency, which will go to polls on April 26 in the second phase of the Lok Sabha elections in Assam.

Ronghang also announced an education scheme launched by the Assam government to support girl students. Under this scheme, every girl child passing matriculation will receive Rs 10,000 for college admission, Rs 12,000 for degree admission, and Rs 25,000 for university admission.


The election rally was attended by MP Horensing Bey, BJP candidate Amarsing Tisso, deputy speaker of the Assam Legislative Assembly Dr Numal Momin, executive member (EM) of KAAC Richard Tokbi, BJP-EKADC president Roland Killing, and several other party leaders.


Earlier, the CEM attended an election rally at Borpathar under the Deopani MAC constituency.


Meanwhile, the vice president of the Karbi Anglong District Congress Committee (KADCC), Roton Engti, attacked the BJP over electoral bonds, terming it the biggest scam in India.


The attack on the BJP intensified as campaigning reached its peak for the second phase of the Lok Sabha elections for the 6 Diphu (ST) Parliamentary Constituency in Assam, with voting scheduled for April 26. The Congress has fielded former MLA Joyram Engleng as their candidate.


During a press conference held on Tuesday at the KADCC office, the vice president stated, “The BJP government introduced electoral bonds with the intention of corrupting public funds. Through electoral bonds, the BJP has amassed a significant amount of money. It’s one of the biggest scams in the country.”


Engti criticised Modi for freezing all Congress bank accounts, causing inconvenience to the party during the electioneering process.


Taking aim at Ronghang, the KADCC vice president criticised the economic situation in the CEM Ronghang-led KAAC, highlighting delays in contractor payments and the disappearance of contractors due to lack of contract works.


Engti also pointed out economic imbalances among the common people, citing the presence of sand, egg, and coal syndicates in Karbi Anglong.


Engti also accused the All Party Hills Leaders Conference (APHLC) and ASDC of acting as BJP agents to divide voters along communal lines.


Urging voters, Engti emphasised the importance of rejecting the BJP to safeguard democracy in India.
