Slamming the BJP for “not fulfilling” its promises made during the last Assembly elections in Assam, Priyanka Gandhi said that Assam do not need a double-engine government with two chief ministers at the realm.
“Assam is in no need for a double-engine government with double chief ministers,” said Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi.
Priyanka Gandhi said this while addressing a massive election rally of the Congress party at Kaliabor in Nagaon district of Assam.
Criticising the BJP Government in Assam, Priyanka Gandhi said that the people of the State were humiliated by the saffron brigade in the last 5 years.
“What have they done in the last five years? The Assamese people didn’t want the CAA, but the BJP brought it anyhow ignoring the sentiments of the people,” Priyanka Gandhi said.
“Did the PM visit Assam when floods were wreaking havoc and spoke to those affected? Did the PM visit Assam when innocent people lost their lives during CAA protests? No,” added Priyanka Gandhi.

Speaking to the media later, Priyanka Gandhi said that the Congress’ fight is not only against the BJP, but also against the saffron party’s ideology.
“Congress is fighting a very strong and united battle, not just against the BJP’s government, but also against their ideology,” said Priyanka Gandhi.
“We are fighting against the BJP’s assault on Assam’s identity,” added Priyanka Gandhi.
“The Congress party and the citizens of Assam will together usher in peace, progress and prosperity,” said Priyanka Gandhi.
