GUWAHATI: “BJP will fight against Ajmal’s team till the last blood of our members. We will keep working to safeguard Assam,” said Assam health, finance and education minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma at ‘Sankalpa Samaroh’ at Bokakhat today.
Addressing the massive rally organised by Asom Gana Parishad and Bharatiya Janata Party, Dr. Sarma said, “Not a single infiltrator will be allowed to enter Assam till AGP-BJP government remains in power.”
“We have no issue with peaceful and democratic agitation. Assam government did not impose any hindrance to the democratic protests. But violence cannot represent the identity of Assam to the world,” Sarma stated.
He also appealed to a section of protesting leaders not to instigate people with fake information regarding the Amended Citizenship Act.
Meanwhile, addressing the huge crowd, Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal said, “People of Assam want development and peace; they want to strengthen the brotherhood.”
“Congress and left parties are conspiring to create turmoil in Assam. But peace-loving people of Assam have come out in large number to defend such conspiracy,” CM Sonowal lashed out at opposition parties.
He also outlined various developmental initiatives of BJP-led government for the people of Assam.
Along with chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal and minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma, the ‘Sankalpa Samaroh’ was attended by state BJP president Ranjeet Kumar Dass, AGP president and minister Atul Bora and a host of senior AGP-BJP leaders.
