Continuing his election campaigning spree, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a public meeting in Bokakhat, Assam. He said, “It is now decided that Assam will get 'double engine ki sarkar', 'doosri baar, BJP sarkar’, ‘doosri baar, NDA sarkar’.

“Today I can respectfully say to all our mothers, sisters and daughters sitting here that we have worked hard to fulfill the responsibility and expectations with which you elected the BJP government,” he added.

The 'double engine sarkaar' of the NDA government ensured the availability of free gas cylinders, LPG, electricity and free healthcare to the people of the state, he said while attacking the Congress government. “During Congress' reign, the main question was to save the loot of Assam from Congress.
Under the NDA, Assam is heading to touch new highs,” the PM said.

Under the NDA government, Prime Minister said the NDA government saved the rhinos of the state that the earlier Congress-led government failed to do. The NDA government has put the rhino hunters in jails. We are working on both safety of animals as well as facilities for the people of Assam.

“All our sanctuaries, including Kaziranga, are our heritage, our responsibility towards the environment and also the means of livelihood. I am happy that the forest area in Assam has increased in the last 5 years,” he added.

Listing developmental schemes undertaken in Assam, PM Modi shared that in the last 5 years, Assam had witnessed a growth in forest cover. It increased the opportunities for tourism and economic activities. We wanted India to be included in one of the leading nations in natural, spiritual, cultural and heritage tourisms, and Assam has all of this.

“More than 90 years ago, the British had made a law and put Bamboo in the category of trees. This law prohibited the transportation, cutting of bamboo grown on private land. Even after independence, this law existed for 70 years. Because of this, farmers, traders, bamboo industries had to face many problems. Our government understood your problems and changed this law. Its huge benefit has been to the people associated with the Bamboo Craft in Assam, to the farmers, to the entrepreneurs,” PM Modi shared.

Hitting out at the opposition, PM Modi stated, “In Congress Raj, the question was how to increase the connectivity between the two sides of the Brahmaputra? Modern bridges are being built on the Brahmaputra during the service of NDA, old incomplete bridges are being completed.”

Addressing the rally, Prime Minister Modi asserted, “When Congress was in power at the Centre and in Assam, there was double negligence and double corruption. You have to remember that Congress means instability, corruption. They have no vision or intention to do any good.”

He exuded confidence of a clean sweep in upcoming assembly elections, said, “Seeing the massive crowd in today’s meeting, I am sure that we are winning the elections in the state of Assam.”

The ethanol blending programme has been a key focus areas of the government to achieve Aatmanirbharta in the field of energy. Due to the sustained efforts of the government, ethanol production capacity has seen a six times increase since 2013-14. The achievements in the course of last eight years under under Ethanol Blending Programe & Biofuels Programe have not only augmented India’s energy security but have also resulted in a host of other benefits including reduction of 318 Lakh Metric Tonnes of CO2 emissions and foreign exchange savings of around Rs 54,000 crore.

In line with the ethanol blending roadmap, Prime Minister will launch E20 fuel at 84 retail outlets of Oil Marketing Companies in 11 States/UTs. E20 is a blend of 20% ethanol with petrol.
