As Assam is heading for the second phase of Assembly elections, scheduled to be held on April 1, Assam Congress president Ripun Bora has asked the people of the State to hit politics of hatred, violence and divide out of the park.

“With the Assam Assembly elections approaching slog overs, things are becoming clearer. I appeal to the people of Assam to continue the momentum and hit politics of hatred, violence and divide out of the park,” Ripun Bora said while interacting with the media in Guwahati.

“The kind of support we have received from the people of Assam is unparalleled. The people have responded magnificently with ground reports indicating that the people putting their trust in Congress’ 5 Guarantees,” Assam Congress chief Ripun Bora added.

Taking a dig at the BJP, Ripun Bora said that the saffron party’s regime in Assam for the last five years was all about ‘misgovernance’ and ‘improvidence’.

“After experiencing the misgovernance and improvidence of the last 5 years, it was critical to have a comprehensive assessment of what Assam of the future desires from a government,” Ripun Bora said.

“In the last 5 years the BJP-led Assam Government has pushed the state backwards. All our guarantees have been structured based on ground assessment, the future vision for Assam and after consultations with revered scholars and economists,” Ripun Bora added.

Ripun Bora said: “The Congress government has always been about the people’s voice. The youth of Assam have shown an overwhelming support towards our job guarantee portal. There have been more than 1,75,000 registrations already.”
