In the year 2020, my resolution is to bring about a certain amount of substance in policing in the state. I wish to get familiar with the problems of the people and ensure justice in the entire criminal justice system.

My resolution for 2020 is to control crime and maintain peace in the city with active cooperation of the people of Guwahati. My best wishes for the New Year to all the readers of G Plus.
Biswajit Pegu, Deputy Commissioner, Kamrup (M)
I believe that one needs to be positive in life and take whatever comes their way in a positive stride. With that thought, my resolution for this year would be to remain positive and work hard for the development of the district.
Bhaskar Hazarika, Movie Director
I wish to work towards spreading the message of peace and love in the world. In 2020, I wish to make more films that touch the hearts of the audience.
Jatin Bora, Actor & Movie Director
My new year’s resolution is to produce the second film under the banner of JB Production and continue to do good work through the medium of films.
I wish to also indulge in social work for the upliftment of Assam and its people.
Kopil Bora, Actor
I will strive to work every day to the fullest and will not let laziness overcome me. I have promised this to myself. Also, I will make every effort to learn newer things so that my craft gets better and I can hopefully deliver better work to my audiences. I wish the readers of G Plus a Happy New Year!
Barsha Rani Bishaya, Actress
A new year has set in but all that's going through the back of my mind is CAA. I have not been able to revel in the celebrations due to the on-going protests and I will resolve to keep protesting to safeguard the ethnic community of Assam.
I want to take this platform to tell everyone that these protests are not communal, they are aimed at safeguarding our own indigenous identity. I will continue to raise my voice against the CAA which violates every cause of the Assam Accord so that Assam doesn't have to bear the brunt of more migrants.
But all of this is not going to affect my professional career. There are a lot of projects in the pipeline for 2020 and I hope to deliver heart-touching performances this year.
Rima Das, National Award winning film director
This year, I'm working on two scripts and will hopefully start productions in February.
My mind is mostly occupied with the situations prevailing in Assam so in 2020, I am hoping that we will see light at the end of the tunnel. I am hopeful for better situations to prevail in the state.
With these movements, the people of Assam have started to realise the value of their language, culture and ethnicity and it's creating a sense of belongingness. In keeping with the unity of the people in mind, I'd like to wish everyone a very happy new year!
