Guwahati: The first phase of voting for 47 assembly seats in Assam will be held on March 27 and the second phase on April 1 (39 assemblies) and the third phase on April 6 (40 assemblies). Meanwhile, BJP leader and Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani visited the state on Tuesday, where she held a press conference in Guwahati, as well as election rallies in Nalbari town and Boribagh in Dhubri city. Because of this, Irani targeted the Congress fiercely.
Speaking at a press conference in Guwahati, Irani said that the Congress is so compelled that it has to resort to AIUDF to maintain itself politically. He said, “It is the compulsion of Congress to join hands with the AIUDF to survive. There is a saying ‘Drowning has the support of straws’ but are they getting each other’s support? Can Assam create a good future?” ” Irani said that alliances of this kind are limited to politics only, do they fulfill any promise of development made to the people?
Describing the same Congress alliance partner AIUDF as a communal party, Irani said, “Do not spread communal hatred among the people and make the fight brother.” The people of Assam will vote for the development and welfare of their families. He said that both the Opposition are trying to remove individuals from the politics of development. The Congress was in power in Assam for three consecutive times from 2001 to 2016. Addressing his election rallies, he targeted Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra without naming him and said, “A few days ago, two members of the Gandhi family came to Assam. They do not know the Assamese culture and Only do politics to save the family. ”
