In Assam, mlAs of opposition parties staged a protest outside the House in the assembly premises shouting ‘Save Democracy’. Opposition MLAs from Congress and AIUDF led the protest in Assam. Opposition MLAs have demanded assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma to withdraw her remarks made during a public meeting in Sarbhog constituency recently.

The Chief Minister of Assam wants to establish an authoritarian state by trying to reduce and spread misinformation about the role and responsibilities of an MLA. It is a threat to democracy, said Debbrata Saikia, leader of the opposition and senior Congress leader. He further said, “The Constitution specifically mentions the roles and responsibilities of MLAs. Meanwhile, Sivasagar MLA Akhil Gogoi said, Assam CM should not speak nonsense like an immature person and respect democracy and constitution. Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma had recently said that the role of an MLA is limited to making laws while it is the duty of ministers to implement them. Sarma had said that as long as he is the Chief Minister of Assam, all government officials including DC and SP will listen to the ministers and not the MLAs. Shivsagar assembly constituency MLA Akhil Gogoi appeared aggressive on the first day of assam assembly. The Opposition had moved a adjournment motion in the meeting on price rise. Akhil Gogoi strongly criticised the government in the media after leaving the House. Inflation in food items is endangering the common man, says Akhil Gogoi.

Corona, lockdown have affected manufacturing, reproduction, business. The price hike across the country has caused a stir to the general public. Therefore, opposition MLAs moved a adjournment motion in the House today. But the Speaker rejected the proposal. In Assam, inflation is the biggest problem today. Unless it is discussed, what will be the discussion in the House? Akhil Gogoi further said, “The Chief Minister said that if the meeting is moved on a adjournment motion, the government does not consider it an honour. If there is a public employee, the Government will be there for discussion. But the Government did not allow the unfortunate thing to happen. He asked the principal not to allow for any reason. Now, we are strongly opposing it. Even at that time, the Chairman had announced the suspension of the meeting. But the meeting is still going on. The programme is going completely out of the rules of principle. If Assam does not allow inflation to be talked about in the Assembly, there can be no bigger dark chapter.
