The protest was held across various districts in the state except the constituencies of Tamulpur, Mariani, Thowra, Gossaigaon and Bhabanipur which will go into by-elections on October 30.

The Congress said that the BJP made five important promises to the people of the state before the assembly elections- the safety of women, increasing daily wages of tea gardeners up to Rs. 350, checking prices of fuel and other essential commodities, unemployment etc. but the government has failed to fulfil the promises made to the people.

The Congress, therefore staged a sit-in-demonstration programme across the state against the government for failing to fulfil the promises.
