Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Friday announced that his government has decided to launch a rural employment generation scheme, named after Mahatma Gandhi, at a cost of Rs.50,000 crore.

He made the announcement at a function organized by the Kamrup Metropolitan district administration on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti.

The Gogoi government would also take up steps to install Gandhiji’s statues in all district headquarters and subdivisions so that the young generation develop interest towards his teachings and philosophy.

Gogoi also said that the state government would initiate steps to include the life and philosophy of Gandhiji in different course curricula so that the students can get to learn those and draw inspiration from them.

“It doesn’t have censorship and of course, the format of web series is very different from the format of films. So, it has great advantages and because of that, a viewer has the choice to watch something at home as well as something in theatres.”

Asked whether the growing popularity of the digital platform can pose a threat to full-length feature films, she said: “I think certain films will still run and I hope they do because I love cinema.”
