In a big revelation, Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma has announced that preliminary discussions were held on an ambitious Rs 5,000 crore scheme for providing self-employment opportunities to the youth of the state during the just-concluded ‘Chintan Shivir’.

Notably, the BJP-led coalition government in the state will complete its tenure in mid-2026.
The CM further added that based on the deliberations, action plans will be prepared soon and uploaded on the department websites so that time-bound implementation can be tracked by the people.

Moreover, Yoga and spiritual guru Jaggi Vasudev, popularly known as Sadhguru, also participated in the three-day Chintan Shivir organized by the Assam government.

The Assam Chief Minister also said that a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev was signed on the ‘Save Soil’ movement spearheaded by his Isha Foundation.

The main aim to organize the Chintan Shivir is to prepare a roadmap for the holistic development of the state by 2026.

Later, Chief Minister Sarma unveiled three rhino statues at Mihimukh in Kaziranga along with Sadhguru.

These rhino statues have been created using the ashes collected from burning rhino horns.
