The BJP-led government, which recently completed a month in power, held its first cabinet meeting. The meeting, presided by CM Sarbananda Sonowal, resolved to upgrade Majuli to become India’s first river island district by August this year. At present the island, which is also Sonowal’s constituency, is a sub-division under Jorhat district.
Besides Majuli, good governance was another issue which was discussed threadbare. The cabinet decided to prepare a 100-day action plan focusing on good governance and public participation in governance. It also decided to appoint 10,000 Teachers Eligibility Test (TET)-qualified teachers in different schools of the state within March 31, 2017. The decks were also cleared for the appointment of 700 doctors in government-run hospitals. The cabinet also decided to convene the budget session of the assembly from July 18 August 12.
