No difference in my work and of a sweeper: Sonowal
Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Thursday said the work done by him and a sweeper were same as both engaged in cleaning the society.
"There is no difference in my work and that of a sweeper.
The sweeper cleans the society with broom. My job is also to clean the society," he said in the state Assembly.
Concluding the discussion on Motion of Thanks to the Governor's address, the Chief Minister said his thrust was to strengthen the system.
He told the House that tax collection has grown by 17 per cent during the first seven months of his tenure, mainly due to the state government's strong stand against corruption.
Reacting to the Opposition's criticism over the eviction drive, the Chief Minister said it would be an encouragement to encroachers if they were not evicted from government land and it was done irrespective of religious affiliations.
