At a rally organised on Saturday to mark the completion of two years of Assam CM Tarun Gogoi’s third term in office,which also marked his twelfth consecutive year in office,Gogoi said the Congress government led by him had created records on the development front. He described his style of politics as akin to regionalism,saying development of states was key to the country’s overall progress.
Our government has created records in various areas of development,be it infrastructure,communication,health,education or agriculture. Even in sports,the state has been able to forge ahead, Gogoi said. He claimed success in handling the insurgency,saying the Congress was trying to resolve issues through peaceful negotiations though AGP tried to solve it through secret killings. It is not just common people who are happier in the past 12 years. Even militant groups are happy that they have been able to begin talks. I believe in ending militancy through democratic means, he said.
