Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma commented on the latest developments on COVID-19 protocols, saying that the government would allow inter-district migration in phases.
"At initially, we'll use the odd-even number algorithm to determine vehicle movement. "All limitations on inter-district transportation would be lifted fully," said CM Sarma.
It should be noted that Chief Minister Sarma, who is now in the nation's capital, has also stated that the curfew will be altered as part of the process.
"The curfew will be imposed from 7 p.m.," CM Sarma stated. We're also considering reopening educational institutions as early as September 1."
"We will reopen the educational institutions if the COVID-19 positive cases drop below 500," he stated.
The Assam Chief Minister met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah during his recent visit to New Delhi. CM Sarma met with his senior colleagues to address various problems pertaining to Assam and expressed his hope that Assam will receive all possible assistance from the central government.
On the sidelines of the key meeting, he also pushed Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give over the ONGC oilfields in Assam to Oil India Ltd., claiming that ONGC's productivity is considerably inferior to OIL's.
