Central fund to fight erosion: Gogoi

Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi on Tuesday said that for the first times, the Centre will get fund to address the erosion confronting the flood-hit states for the last couple of decades.

Addressing a press conference in Dispur on Tuesday, the chief minister said that the prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh on Monday had agreed to clear the funds to mitigate the misery of the post—flood situation.’

The prime minister has already issued necessary instructions to the planning commission.
Taking potshot at AGP and BJP, Gogoi said that NDA in Centre and AGP in the state did precious little to contain the situation during their tenures.
