While accusing the Congress of seeing votes in infiltrators, Shah said, “In Kerala, they [Congress] have partnered with Muslim League that divided nation, in Bengal it’s Furfura Sharif and here [Assam] it is Badruddin Ajmal. This party can stoop to any low to win.” He added that BJP does not believe in vote bank politics.
The senior BJP leader asked the people of Assam to choose between BJP and the opposition. He said, “In some days, it will be decided who will run Assam for the next five years. On one hand, there’s PM Modi, Sarbananda [Sonowal] and Himanta’s [Biswa Sawma] leadership and on the other hand, Rahul Gandhi and Badruddin Ajmal’s leadership. Tell us who can develop Assam?”
