The Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday blamed Congress for the infiltration problems in Northeast.
According to PM,the Assam and rest of the Northeast is facing the infiltration due to the policies of Congress and he is trying to solve the problem as a dedicated ‘chowkidar’ committed to resolve the issue.
He also said it was the erstwhile Jana Sangh and tall leaders such as Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who had raised their voice in support of Bangladesh during the neighbouring country’s independence movement,and not as the opposition depicted it.
“Congress has always cheated the people of Assam and if Sardar (Vallabhbhai) Patel and (first Assam chief minister) Gopinath Bordoloi had not taken a strong stand at the time of Partition, then Assam’s identity would not have been what it is today,” Modi said while addressing an election rally in Assam’s Gohpur.
“This chowkidar is committed to fight against Assam’s problems of infiltration, terrorism and corruption and ensure the dignity of the people of the state,”he added.
