GUWAHATI: Expressing confidence that National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will once more type the federal government in Assam, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president JP Nadda on Saturday attacked Congress occasion saying “the only guarantee expected from them is that they will do scam wherever they go.”
Speaking to ANI, on 5 guarantees promised by Mahajot (Grand Alliance) to tea backyard staff in Assam, Nadda stated, “Their five guarantees also included Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019 (CAA). How can a state law overrule a law passed by the Union Parliament? They are misleading people. This is how they have deceived people… The other name of Congress is ‘lie’. I can give you one guarantee that wherever the Congress will go, they will do Ghotala (scam). They don’t know anything about Lok Sewa (Public service).”
He slammed the earlier Congress Government in Assam for not working for tea backyard staff and stated the opposition occasion is doing ‘political tourism’ within the state.
“What did they (Congress) do in 40 years. What did Gogoji’s (Tarun Gogoi) government do in 15 years? Tea garden workers were there when Congress was in government. They are coming in and doing political tourism here and explaining things to people. Do they know that under the ‘Assam Chah Bagicha Dhan Puraskar Mela Scheme’, we gave an amount of Rs 8,000 to 8 lakh tea garden workers? But did they do? What is their history?” requested the BJP president.
He stated when was well being minister, the federal government gave 130 cell medical models to the tea backyard staff.
“When there were job losses, Sabranad Sonowal brought in a scheme to give Rs 12,000 to pregnant women, which is now increased to 18,000. The roads on which the Congress is traveling and making promises are constructed by Sabranand Sonowal and the BJP government,” Nadda stated.
He added that the folks of Assam have made up their minds and have blessed the NDA alliance within the state.
