He also said, “Under the Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana (RGGVY), the BPL and middle-class families will be provided free electricity up to 120 units which will benefit 58 lakh families in Assam,” Bora said.
Bora also announced that if the Congress comes to power, the government will waive off the agri loans of the farmers and the microfinance loans of the women.

Bora said the Congress has decided to waive of the loans of those people if the party comes to power in Assam.
He informed that the agri loans of the farmers have already been waived off in states like Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh.
