Top BJP leaders including Union Home Minister Amit Shah and party’s national president have been caught on the wrong foot in Assam on Monday.
The two central BJP leaders who were in Assam campaigning for the saffron brigade on Monday, seem to be living in a distant land far away from realities.
Both Amit Shah and JP Nadda seems to have got carried away while addressing election rallies in Assam on Monday.
While addressing an election rally in the State, Amit Shah said that Assam has not witnessed any kind of protest under the regime of the BJP-led Government.
Amit Shah further went on to say that in the last five years of BJP regime in Assam, no innocent life has been lost in police firing.
“During the last 5 years of BJP rule in Assam under the leadership of Sarbananda Sonowal, there has been no protest and none died in police firing,” Amit Shah had said in an election rally.
However, the facts states otherwise and is known to all in Assam.
Assam was the epicentre of massive anti-CAA protests that rocked the Country back in 2019 and 2020.
People in lakhs across Assam took to streets and demonstrated against the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) brought by the BJP.
Moreover, as many as 5 innocent lives were lost in police firing in different parts of Assam during the anti-CAA protests.
Among those who lost their lives were 17-year-old Sam Stafford, who died in police firing during a protest against the CAA in Guwahati.
On the other hand, BJP national president JP Nadda said that there were no incidents of curfew being imposed by the BJP-led Assam Government in the last five years.
The BJP national president must be reminded here that curfew were imposed in Assam during the same anti-CAA protests that rocked Assam in 2019.
However, the top central BJP leaders seem to be living in a distant land far away from realities.
Or, has the BJP leaders decided to completely turn a blind eye to the anti-CAA sentiments in Assam?
Has the BJP decided to completely ignore the sacrifices made by young Assamese to keep the CAA at bay?
