Reiterating his government's commitment to develop world-class infrastructure in the state, he directed officials to ensure timely completion of all projects.
"As we observe 'A Day dedicated to Development', I inaugurated & laid the foundation for 23 projects worth Rs 545 cr at Rangia today," Sarma tweeted.
"I have directed officials to ensure timely execution so these initiatives bear the fruits of development & prosperity for people of Assam," he added.
Sarma said he started the day's programme by inaugurating a four-lane link road that will connect Rangia to National Highway 31.
He said the government is committed to invest over Rs 10,000 crore in the 2023-24 fiscal to create world-class infrastructure in Assam.
Inaugurating a 47-bed ICU at Rangiya Model Hospital, Sarma said, "Assam is witnessing a silent revolution in healthcare. We are determined to bring quality healthcare infrastructure closer to our towns and villages."
