Nadda who reached Assam on Monday addressed a mega rally at southern Assam’s Silchar.
Addressing the huge crowd in the Barak Valley, he asserted that BJP would return to power in Assam with a resounding victory.
The BJP chief claimed that BJP would form the government for the second consecutive term by winning hundred plus seats in the 126-member House.
The party since the 2016 assembly win in the state has emerged victorious in all the elections-whether it be the Parliamentary, byelections, zilla parishads, panchayats, territorial or autonomous councils-and will come to power again in the next assembly polls, Nadda said while addressing ”Vijay Sankalp” rally at the police parade ground in Silchar.
“This has been possible due to all-round development of all sections of the people and the entire state by the government of Sarbananda Sonowal with the support of Prime Minister Narendra Modi”, he said.
Its BJP’s “double engine” government at the centre and the state that has led to proper implementation of all the schemes in the various sectors, he said.
“It is in the entire country that people have time and again reposed faith in Modi ji which has resulted in the BJP winning almost all elections at all levels”, Nadda said.
Recent elections at Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir, Gujarat, Karnataka, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and North East have shown that people want to be part of Modi ji”s “model of development” and they also served as an example of “how a party and the government can work together”.
Starting BJP’s poll campaign from the Barak valley, which has a sizeable population of the Hindu Bengalis, is significant as it was here that the party had began its journey in the state winning two Lok Sabha seats and nine assembly seats for the first time in the early nineties.
Later at night, he had a meeting with state BJP leadership including Assam chief minster Sarbananda Sonowal, finance minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma at Amingaon. The meeting reportedly drew out party’s roadmap for the upcoming assembly elections in Assam.
