All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala has said the ‘Mahajot’ (Grand Alliance) will win 101 seats in the ongoing Assam Assembly election and form government on May 5.
Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala told reporters in Guwahati on Friday that after formation of government in Assam, their government would initiate the process of implementing the five guarantees in the first session of the State Assembly.
In its election manifesto, the Congress has promised to implement five guarantees if it is voted to power in Assam.
These guarantees include a law to ensure non-implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), generation of 5 lakh jobs, free 200 units of electricity to each household, minimum daily wage of Rs. 365 to tea garden workers and monthly assistance of Rs. 2,000 to every homemaker.
Surjewala claimed that the BJP hasn’t won a big mandate in any state except Uttar Pradesh since Narendra Modi took oath as the Prime Minister in 2014.
While the first phase of the Assam Assembly election was held on March 27 for 47 seats, the polling for the second phase was held on April 1 for 39 seats and the third and the polling for the final phase will be held on April 6.
The Congress leader claimed that after the first two phases of polling in Assam on March 27 and April 1, it has become clear that the Congress-led ‘Mahajot’ would win 101 seats.
The counting of votes will be conducted on May 2, 2021.
Surjewala said after May 2, Assam would get a new chief minister in Assam.
“The people of Assam have gone in the right direction in the first two phases of polling and will show BJP the door this time. The people tested the so-called “double-engine” government for five years and found that the ruling BJP has not only deprived Assam of any tangible development, but it also destroyed its socio-cultural fabric,” AICC general secretary Surjewala said.
He claimed that the five guarantees of the Congress for Assam will prove a milestone for the state.
