Bharatiya Janata Party’s working president J P Nadda on January 4th, 2020 has assured that the Union government is committed for the development of Assam and safeguarding the interests of its people.
Nadda said that the saffron party is committed to protecting the heritage of Assam. He also mentioned that the BJP government at the Centre would ensure that Clause 6 of the Assam Accord is protected in true spirit.
Addressing a massive party rally in Guwahati’s Khanapara on January 4th, 2020, the party leader said, “There were 50,000 Sikh families in Afghanistan. Today, only 2,000 families are left in Afghanistan. In Pakistan, the population of Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Parsis, Jains, & Buddhists was 23%. Today, it stands at just 3%. Where did this 20% of people go?.”
He also alleged that the Congress is misleading people for “vote bank politics” and appealed the karyakartas to reach out to the public and “dispel the misinformation”.
“There are about 2,300 political parties in India. 54 out of them are regional and 7 of them are national parties. All these 54 regional parties have become dynastic parties. BJP is the only national party apart from CPI(M) that remains ideological,” Nadda added.
The party leaders said the event was attended by nearly 70,000 party workers from across the state. The leaders shared a number of photographs of the event where the BJP workers and supporters are seen wearing caps and scarves sporting the BJP symbol and carrying BJP flags.
Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has earlier said that his government has forwarded suggestions to the Centre, which is in process of framing the rule of the CAA, to safeguard the interest of indigenous people.
