Rather, only the congress pawns were benefited by the various schemes that were implemented during these period”- said AGP president Chandra Mohan Patowary taking part in the ‘Gana sangjog jatra’ of AGP from Sadiya to Dhubri, on Monday at Barpeta district playground. "The first process of ‘raijar padulit Raijar Sarkar’ was also not fulfilled and the congress government have been beating the doll-drums that their govt will employed the unemployed youths and remove the unemployment problems from the state. But surprisingly at present 22 lakh unemployed youth hankering after their jobs." Criticizing about the implementation of govt schemes he added that from those schemes only the congress leaders were benefited. In his address Patowary said that this time if their government would be able to capture their seat, they would give importance to the burning problems of the state like - flood, erosion and unemployment etc.
