Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday said the government will carry ahead the peace process initiated with the ULFA and other insurgent groups.
“During our third term of the government we are hopeful of carrying ahead the peace process to ensure that permanent peace prevails in the State,” Mr. Gogoi told the State Assembly in reply to the motion of thanks to the Governor’s address.
He said, “Development has been our election plank and that is why the Congress got overwhelming majority and formed government in the third consecutive term.”
Road communication has been improved and employment problem has been effectively tackled, he said.
Conceding that corruption was a problem afflicting the administration, Mr. Gogoi said steps will be taken to tackle the issue.
Flood and erosion problem will be taken care of by the government in the next five years, he added.
