CM Sonowal asked the legendary persona about his feedback on the developmental activities of the government. However Gohain clearly stated that he wasnt happy as the people have barely tasted the fruits of success be it GST, Demonitization, etc which has hammered the people rather than prosperity.

However Gohain has to say that the government wasn't convinced enough about the burning issue of Hindi Bangladedhis in the state to include it in the list of priorities.
