Rush of central ministers

As the state is gearing up for the Assembly poll early next year the Narendra Modi government starts sending more ministers to prepare the groundwork for the poll victory. 

Each of the central ministers have so far doled out promises to the voters. 

Textile minister Santosh Gangowar promised steps to uplift the textile sector apart from a huge garment industry as he attended a function at Boragaon in the outskirt of Guwahati. 

His counterpart in steel and mining Narendra Singh promised a steel depot in Silchar. He further set up a committee to tap the mines and minerals within the next 3 years. 

"More ministers would visit the state to woo the voters," said a BJP leader in New Delhi

None of the promises are likely to be implemented this year. 

"It does make sense that the Centre is likely to forget the promises if BJP fails to form the next government in Dispur," say social activists.
