Addressing an election rally here, the senior BJP leader exuded confidence that Assam will be one of the top states of the country, if the saffron party is re-elected for the second term.
“During our tenure, roads worth ₹30,000 crore have been completed in Assam. Sanctions for roads worth another 50,000 crore have been given. At present, work is on for road projects worth ₹35,000 crore.
“Assam will have road projects worth ₹2 lakh crore if BJP is voted to power,” Gadkari, who handles the road transport and highways portfolio, said.
Assam can be termed developed only when poverty is eliminated from the state for which the government has approved a ₹1,300-crore bamboo mission, the BJP leader said.
“What Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and (Chandra Mohan) Patowary did for Assam in the last five years, it was just a trailer. The actual film is yet to start. You give your blessings and they will work again for your welfare,” he added.
