Later he headed to the RSS office in the Ambicapatty area of Silchar to meet the officials and had a private meeting with them.

He gave a deadline till Durga Puja for the bypass to become motorable. He even expressed that he would like to visit Silchar on Mahasaptami and check if the work is done.

He said, “50 lacks INR worth of budgetary provision is made available for now and another 50 lakhs INR remain in the pipeline.” Sarma also remembered Mother Teresa and said,” The main goal of the hospital which is to be charitable in nature should be remembered for the benefit of those who need it. The 3rd wave of COVID infections puts the kids at risk which raises serious concern and the development of health infrastructure remains at the core of all Govt. planning.”
