In his visit to Assam ahead of the assembly polls , likely to be held in March-April year, Union Home Minister Amit Shah has slammed the Congress All India United Democratic Front combine. He alleged that if they are voted to power in Assam they will open ‘all gates’ to welcome infiltrators.
However, Shah avoided any mention of the contentious CAA and the NRC the laws which saw huge protests last year.
Addressing a public rally in Nalbari, Shah said the Congress rule in the state gave only bloodshed, in which thousands of youths lost their lives.
“Can Congress and Badrudding Ajmal keep Assam free from infiltration? If they come to power, they will open all gates to welcome them, because it is their vote bank,” he said.
Only the Bharatiya Janata Party government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi can protect the state from infiltration from the neighbouring country, Shah said in his first election rally in poll-bound Assam.
Shah Further said ” Prime Minister Narendra Modi initiated the process to end insurgency in the Northeast by signing the Bodo Peace Accord. Efforts were made for settlement for Bru-Reang issue & 700 members of 8 armed groups laid down arms”.
On the rally he held Shah said : “This rally is a reply to those who disturbed the peace in Assam by spreading venom in the name of Bodo and non-Bodo. Today, Bodos & non-Bodos both are present here. With the Bodo Peace Accord, the Prime Minister gave the message — wherever there is unrest in the Northeast, negotiate and pave the way for peace. ”
The Congress has formed Grand Alliance with AIUDF, Communist Party of India, Communist Party of India-Marxist, Communist Party of India-Marxist Leninist and Anchalik Gana Morcha to fight the upcoming assembly election.
