BJP’s sitting MP Topon Kr Gogoi, accompanied by Sonari MLA Dharmeswar Gogoi, addressed several meetings in Baruah Chali TE, Haridev Kanu TE, Borguri Badulipar, Longpatia, Ahukhat Moran Habi, etc., places under Sonari LAC of the Charaideo district and reiterated his commitment to work silently but dedicatedly for the people of Jorhat Lok Sabha as desired by his party led by chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma in the state and Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the centre for a developed India. Over 200 minorities and others joined the BJP in the meeting held in Bhojo, Simaliguri Sivasagar and Charaideo district. Biswa Bhunta, convener, Media Cell BJP, while campaigning for Topon Kumar Gogoi on Monday said that the BJP has done in 10 years what the Congress could not do in 70 years. For example, he mentioned that the BJP has declared Sivasagar as an ‘Iconic City’, laid the foundation stone for the Rs 140 crore Rangghar beautification project, Sivasagar Medical College, Charaideo Moidam World Heritage Project, strengthened Desang, Darika, Dikhow embankments, upgrading Sibsagar College into a university, etc. Meanwhile, addressing the media in Sivasagar Press Club on Monday, Gaurav Gogoi alleged that the BJP government has become overtly autocratic and those who oppose CAA are being put behind bars. He alleged that the BJP is running a syndicate in the tea gardens which is a bigger scam than the electoral bonds. He said that if the capitalists turn the gardens into different industries, the tea garden labourers will be jobless. Gaurav Gogoi visited several GPs in Sivasagar the same day and offered prayers in Amlakhi Deoxal, a religious pith of the Ahoms in Bokota. Regarding the Congress leaders that have deserted the party, Gaurav Gogoi said that the party is purged of the corrupt members now and he is very happy now.
