‘Medical college to come up if Congress wins’

DIPHU, March 29 – The Karbi Anglong Hills district will have a medical college at Diphu if the Congress comes to power in the ensuing Parliamentary elections, announced Himanta Biswa Sharma, State Health Minister while addressing election rally at Dongkamokam in Karbi Anglong on Saturday.

Urging the voters to cast their vote in favour of Birensing Ingti, INC candidate for Diphu (ST) Parliamentary constituency, the Health Minister claimed that if Ingti, were to win this election by a margin of 1,50,000 voters, then within ten days from the date of declaration of the election result, he would lay the foundation stone of a civil hospital at Dongkamokam.

Taking a potshot at Elwin Teron, ASDC candidate, Sharma said Teron is a past master in splitting political parties. Despite knowing that his defeat is imminent, he has dared to contest the election. After the end of the British Raj, the INC ruled the country for 45 years and did the development works for the betterment of the people. During the Congress rule, the road construction was extended from 4 lakh km to 20 lakh km, the literary rate was increased from 18 per cent to 65 per cent, Mukut Mithi. Former Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh said while addressing the rally. Lambasting the NDA Government, he said it divided the people on communal lines for political gains. Mithi further said that revenue generation has increased, employees are getting regular salaries and per capita income has increased. Apart from this, he said even ST forest dwellers cannot be evicted as per a new legislation passed in December, 2007. He also appealed to the electorate to vote for INC.

“We need to develop our infrastructure to march ahead,” Bhubaneshwar Kalita, president, APCC, said while addressing the election rally. Refuting the allegation levelled by LK Advani in a public meeting during his visit to Kheroni Chariali, Kalita said , the Congress has stopped illegal immigration. Apart from this, the security in the border areas has been tightened. Advani wants communal division for political gains and his wish to become Prime Minister will never be translated into practice. Under the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Dr Manmohan Singh, the nation is marching ahead, Kalita said. He urged the voters to co-operate with INC for more development and appealed to the gathering to vote for Birensing Ingti for a record win. ASSAM TRIBUNE
