SILCHAR, Feb 5: For the over all development of Bishnupriya Manipuris living in different parts of Assam, rupees one crore has been sanctioned by the Congress-led Tarun Gogoi Government, pointed out Kartik Sena Sinha, Patharkandi MLA, while addressing a press conference in the newly set up office of the Bishnupriya Manipuri Development Council. The sanction for another Rs 10 crore, he said, was being awaited. Since no scheme or project could be taken up with the meagre fund of rupees one crore, demand from the Council was made for more accommodation of unemployed and educated persons under self-help groups, financial assistance to youths for auto rickshaws in order to make them self-sustaining, besides laying stress on implementation of schemes for women.

Kartik Sena Sinha claimed during his tenure as MLA, Patharkandi had seen lot of development and the socioeconomic scenario has changed for better. He was confident of being given nomination to contest election on Congress ticket since he deserted BJP on the specific assurance of the Chief Minister, party high command Bhubaneswar Kalita, ministers Himanta Biswa Sarma and Rockybul Hussain of fair deal.

The turn-coat MLA further claimed how he got funds released for various development schemes since his priority was to ensure welfare and well being of all sections of people irrespective of their caste and community. Unfolding the wave of development brought about by him, he cited sanction of rupees five crore for a modern hospital, rupees eight crore for market, Rs 15 crore for three bridges on Longai river, Rs 19 crore for Lylapur-Katamani Road, Rs 50 crore for flow irrigation, rupees six crore for six PHE plants, irrigation schemes involving Rs 90 lakh, Adamtila Road Rs 90 lakh, Rs 55 lakh for PHCs in tea garden areas, Rs 2.25 lakh for veterinary dispensary, Rs 4.64 lakh for E and D schemes.

On the progress of work on Rajiv Gandhi Rural Electrification Programme in his constituency, Kartik Sena Sinha had no specific answer, except to say that it was for the Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi to provide necessary inputs on the matter. He looked confident about his nomination by Congress from his home constituency of Patharkandi and asserted “there is no candidate or party to defeat him at the husting” as he had the support of people. Since the Tarun Gogoi Government was offering development councils indiscriminately as election sops, he would press for similar bodies for Rabi Das community and Koibartas.
