Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president JP Nadda on Monday said that the party will always give due recognition to the culture, language and identity of Assam.
“It is the responsibility of BJP to safeguard the culture and language of Assam and the party has always given importance to these things,” said Nadda.
The BJP chief was addressing a public meeting in south Assam’s Silchar on Monday.
He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit Shah solved the 50-year-old Bodo issue by signing a peace accord and bringing militants to the mainstream.
“The BJP will always take good care of Assam’s unique culture and language. Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee was one of the first national voices to support the Assam Movement,” said Nadda.
He said that the Bru-Reang crisis, too, was solved by the Modi government.
The land dispute was also solved by our government with the help of the Smart Fence project, he said.
“We remember our efforts of 1991 and Barak Valley was one of the first regions to bless us whole-heartedly. We got nine MLAs and two MPs from this valley,” said Nadda.
Under the Modi government, Assam received Rs 3 lakh crore for development, the BJP chief stated.
“Lotus is blooming across India. NDA always talked about giving importance to the state of Assam. If the existence of Assam is identified in any way, it is done by the NDA government,” said Nadda.
