Each sub-division in Assam must have atleast one women police station, demanded APCC Leader Debabrata Saikia.

Commenting on the Jan Ashirbad Yatra of Union Minister and Former Assam CM Sarbananda Sonowal, Saikia said that this yatra of Sarbananda Sonowal is not a “Ashirbad yatra”, rather it has become a “cursed yatra” for Assam.

The APCC Leader also criticised the BJP government for breaking the Covid-19 SOP that it has issued. He said that it is extremely unfortunate to see how the government is privatizing the public properties in the state.

“The Centre has taken this policy to make the rich rich and the poor poor,” said Debabrata Saikia.
