Modi Fest to render awareness about government schemes to beneficiaries
Dispur, June 17: In a move to bring the largest river island Majuli at the tip of finger, Chief
Minister Sarbananda Sonowal today unveiled an android mobile app for disseminating
information on xatriya culture, Mising culture, Carbon Registry, inputs on hotels, transport,
lodges, car mechanic, car rentals and all information regarding district administration etc of
Majuli in presence of Xatradhikar of Uttar Kamalabari Xatra Janardan Deb Goswami at a
function held at Majuli on Saturday.
Chief Minister Sonowal also participated in a function christened Making of
Developed India (Modi) fest organised at Garmurh in Majuli. The programme popularly
known as Modi Fest was organised to showcase the achievements of the NDA Government
at the Centre in the last three years led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Speaking on the occasion Chief Minister Sonowal said that in the last three years the
NDA Government under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi launched several welfare
measures to bring all sections of the people especially the poorer section of the society in the
schemes of things. Referring to NDA’s pet programme ‘Jan Dhan Scheme’ where in all the
people belonging to economically insolvent classes were brought to the banking fold by
creating bank accounts in their names, Sonowal said that the system has led to direct transfer
of government subsidies without the presence of any middle man.
Sonowal also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision on demonetisation
has had a cascading effect to wipe out black money and corruption. Moreover,
demonetisation has expedited digital transaction and created a deterrent against corruption in
the country. In the post demonetisation period, Assam Government has enabled eight lakh tea
workers to open their bank accounts which would again help them to have direct access to the
benefits of different government subsidies.
Chief Minister Sonowal also said that the Centre has launched several schemes for the
benefits of the people belonging to all sections and to generate awareness about the schemes,
Modi Fests are being organised to enable the beneficiaries to reap dividends. He also
appealed to all sections of the people to extend their cooperation towards successful
implementation of the schemes for the welfare of all and sundry.
Stating Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to address the nation on the
occasion of NDA government’s three year completion in power from Assam itself was an
indication of Centre’s overwhelming priority to Assam and North East and their
development. He also termed Assam and North East as a growth engine to the development
of a new India as Sonowal called upon all sections of the people to render their unequivocal
support to Modi’s dream of a developed India.
MP Pradan Barua, MLAs Bimal Bora, Ranauj Pegu, Chairman of DuliajanNumaligarh
Pipeline Limited Rupam Goswami, Member Secretary, State Sports and Youth
Welfare Lakhya Konwar and a host of other dignitaries were present on the occasion.
