Terming the law and order of the state better than before, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said the strength of the United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA), a separatist outfit, is “no more” and there is “no law and order problem” in the state.
“There is no law and order problem in the state and it is now a peaceful state… ULFA’s strength is no more,” he told reporters here.
The Chief Minister was for a roadshow for the ensuing business summit Advantage Assam scheduled to be held in early February.
Praising the BJP government in the state Sonowal said that more than Rs 6,500 crore investments were made in the state during the present government’s rule.
Responding to a query about the reported incident of a tea garden being asked to contribute to ULFA’s fund, he said: “This is a misleading information. We have to see the situation in the entire state.”
The state is peaceful. Why had investors invested more than Rs 6,500 crore in our regime so far in the state.
Only single incident cannot justify. There is no such incident in the state… only WhatsApp message. Cyber activities sometime create confusion in the mind of people.
“He said the state, which is seeing infrastructure development, is being projected as the gateway to the Asean countries as it has road connectivity with Myanmar, water route with Bangladesh’s Chittagong port and air connectivity as well.
