Amit Shah, BJP president hit out at Congress and alleged that in Assam the job prospects of the locals was affected by illegal influx from Bangladesh. The entry of immigrants can be stopped into the state, if BJP comes into power.
In 2003, In Kokrajhar, Shah was there to attend the 13th anniversary of Bodoland accord signed during the NDA regime.
“The process of detecting and deporting illegal immigrants has started. “Shah said.
He further added that for 2016 assembly polls, there might be electoral alliance of Bodoland Peoples Front (BPF) and the BJP. For development of Bodoland Territorial Council, BPF chief has sought a Rs. 1000 crore package.
BJP government will give much more than what BPF Chief Hagrama Mohiliary had asked for. In Assam, from past 15 years development has taken a back seat Assam still remains a backward state despite being endowed with natural and human resource.
At the time of independence Assam was among five richest states of the country and as reduced the state among five poorest state of the country under Congress, which ruled the state for majority of time. In 1962, then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had abandoned Assam in the wake of attack from China. Assam is still part of India because of our soldiers.
42 per cent population of the state does not have access to safe drinking water and more than one crore population of the state is surviving below the poverty line. To solve the problem of unemployment, the ruling Congress party is not doing anything.
“When Congress came to power in 2001 there were 9 lakh unemployed youths in the state. In 2016 it has grown to 23 lakh,” Shah said asking the people to give a chance to BJP-BPF to rule the state.
According to Mr. Shah Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, states ruled by BJP, have 24×7 electricity, roads, hospitals and drinking water. BJP president said while addressing a mammoth public rally of BJP workers in central Assam’s Nagaon district that Assam has recorded 9000 cases of crime against women which is also highest in the country and is one of the highest in maternal mortality ratio.
Congress is yet to submit the completion certificate of majority of the central government schemes. The state did not submit the utilization certificates and even UPA government had stopped funding in some projects. A government must be there which can implement the schemes of Centre, not quarrel with the center.
