Former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath on Friday said BJP’s politics of hate and dividing the society in Assam will be rejected by the people of the state in the forthcoming Assembly elections.
Without taking the names of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, the senior Congress leader said that the decisions for Assam are taken by two persons sitting in Delhi.
“Decisions for Assam or anywhere else are taken by two persons sitting in Delhi. Posts of party president or state leaders don’t hold any value for them. Gujarati bosses have decided who the chief minister will be and how Assam needs to be governed,” Nath said.
He alleged that the BJP-led government in Assam did not fulfil its poll promises and failed to present a “performance scorecard for the last five years”.
“The BJP’s campaign for the first phase of polls has been negative and it offered politics of hate. The Congress believes that we should work to fulfil our dreams for Assam and turn our vision into reality,” he said.
Claiming that his party will work for the development of the state, Nath said, “The choice is clear. The Congress will be your partner in the development journey of Assam for the next five years and beyond.”
Nath also accused PM Modi of “not having time to speak to the farmers protesting against the farm laws at Delhi borders for more than 120 days”.
“The first phase of the assembly elections will be held tomorrow. Our visions are centred around the people of Assam and how to take the state forward,” he said.
“In this effort, Congress has made five Guarantees to the people of Assam that is core to what Assam stands for:
“A-Assure employment by 5 Lakh Government Jobs and 25 Lakh Private Jobs, S- Safeguard the Assamese Identity by stopping the implementation of CAA, S- Secure the rights of Tea workers by increasing daily wages to Rs 365, A-Augment disposable incomes by helping households save Rs 1400 per month (200 unit’s free electricity), M- Make women stronger by Rs 2000 per month to every housewife,” Nath said.
We would urge all the voters who would be casting their votes to support the Congress party in turning its vision for Assam into reality, he added.
