Himanta Biswa Sarma alleged that Badruddin Ajmal has been pumping in money from fundamentalist organisations “in the name of social service”.
“Badruddin Ajmal is bringing money from the fundamentalist organisation in the name of social service. Not as an individual but as a symbol of certain people they are our enemy,” alleged Assam Minister and BJP top gun Himanta Biswa Sarma.
On being asked by media persons in regards to the claims by certain section of the opposition parties that he and Badruddin Ajmal are two extremes of polarisation politics, Himanta Biswa Sarma said that he is an ‘extremist’ in protecting Indian and Assamese cultures.
“I’m happy if they have called me so. I’m extremist in protecting Indian and Assamese culture. If anyone has given me the title, convey my regards to them,” said Himanta Biswa Sarma.
Speaking about the issue of controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which the opposition parties including the newly formed Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) and Raijor Dal are taking up as their main election agenda, Himanta Biswa Sarma said that nobody anymore is talking about CAA.
“Nobody is discussing CAA. You can check social media. People are busy discussing that Assam has given scooty to girl students, and which two-wheeler the boys will get. Congress is behind by 50 years, brings up stale issues,” said Assam Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.
On the other hand, criticizing the Congress over their ‘Axom Basaon Ahok’ campaign, Himanta Biswa Sarma questioned the Congress as to from whom they want to protect the State.
“From whom do they want to save Assam? If they want to save Assam, then, let them take a stand against the immigrant Muslims and say that we will protect Assam’s culture,” said Assam Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.
