‘I can say that you have decided to bring NDA back to power again’ Modi said in his last rally in Assam
On Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed to the voters in Assam that they should vote for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) alliance for continued momentum of growth.
On Tuesday, in Assam on the last day of rally ahead of the polls, Modi listed developmental projects undertaken by the Centre and the BJP-led state government.
He referred to the construction of bridges over the Brahmaputra and an improved road network.
“To continue this momentum of growth and development, it is very important to bring back NDA government to power. We believe in sabka saath, sabka vikas, sabka vishwas (with all, development for all, with the trust of all). We do not discriminate in our schemes and everyone is equally benefitted,” he said at the rally in Tamulpur.
This week, Bodoland Peoples’ Front (BPF) candidate from Tamulpur, Rangja Kungur Basumatary joined the BJP.
Basumatary`s move will help Leho Ram Boro who is also a BJP ally. BPF was a part of the BJP-led government in Assam. The party won 12 seats in 2016.
Modi blamed the Congress-led alliance for conspiring to take over Assam.
“The election is still on. But yesterday some people made an announcement saying what kind of dress those in the next government would wear. There can be no greater dishonour for Assam and its culture. It is shocking that they are conspiring to take over Assam. You have to come out in large numbers and vote to foil their designs,” Modi said.
Modi was referring to a statement made by lawmaker Abdur Rahim Ajmal. He said that there will be a dari-tupi-lungi (beard-skullcap-loincloth) government in Assam this time.
The BJP calls the alliance of Congress and AIUDF unholy. “This is my last election meeting in Assam. This is an occasion not just to ask for votes for the third phase but also to thank you for the blessings you have showered to us in the first two phases. From my meetings, I can say that you have decided to bring NDA back to power again,” Modi said.
