Sononwal seeks constructive criticism

Chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal once again reiterated that his government will welcome and accept 'constructive criticism'.

Amid growing protest against the controversial Citizenship Amendement Act, which has rocked the entire country, Sonowal said that the state BJP-led government has been working for upliftment of all irrespective of religion and caste since 2016.

Addressing a pressmeet on Wednesday the chief minister sought cooperation from all section of the people for making the state prosperous.

“We have been earnestly trying to do work for all. We need your (journalists) constructive criticism.”, he said, adding that the people should continue to keep faith in the government. “We would not do anything which could be harmful for the state and its people. I appeal all people to keep faith on us like before.”

Earlier, Sonowal blamed the Congress and the leftists for the on-going protest against the CAA in Assam.

Several organisations including the All Students' Union(AASU) and people from different strata of the society have been vehemently protesting against the contentious Act since December 3.
