Duliajan: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Tuesday said Assam’s image has taken a hit due to bandh and protest culture and if the trend continues, the state cannot prosper.
“According to Gauhati High Court, calling bandh is illegal. But many are disobeying the order. The government has to take it to logical conclusion,” Sarma said.
Sarma said that during the bandh and protests many government assets get destroyed, and according to the Gauhati high court order, any organization responsible for calling bandh has to compensate the loss.
“We need to take that order to logical conclusion,” Sarma said,
He said organisations have the right to call a bandh when government fails to resolve an issue. “Keep the trust on government. If we fail to resolve your issues, then protest,” Sarma said.
Sarma also said that the ‘chanda culture’ (donation culture) by various organisations has affected business environment in the state.
