Amit Shah Attacks Opposition From Birthplace Of Assam's Socio-Religious Icon
With a promise of making Assam the number one state in development if voted to power again, Home Minister Amit Shah today attacked the opposition, accusing AIUDF chief Badaruddin Ajmal as "communal".
Mr Shah asked if the Congress can save Assam from infiltrators sitting with Mr Ajmal. The Home Minister then took a swipe at new political parties - the AJP and Raijor Dal, born out of the protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act or CAA. Mr Shah said these parties are trying to help the Congress, which was in power during the Assam agitation in the 80s and had "fired at" and "killed" young protesters in Assam.
"We are committed to making Assam the No. 1 state in India, if you allow us the opportunity to serve the state for the next five years. You granted us an absolute majority government last time, and we have delivered. Give us five more years," Mr Shah said at a rally in Batadrava, the birthplace of Assam's socio-religious preacher Srimanta Shankar Deva.
