Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday, while addressing a public meet in Assam’s Chirang, said Bharatiya Janata Party will fulfil every promise made in the Bodoland agreement before 2022.
“I have come here to promise you that the Government of India will implement every single promise made in the Bodo agreement before 2022 for a peaceful Assam,” Shah said.
Speaking about the recurrent floods in the state, the former BJP National President said that it is very necessary that the state is made free from floods.
“In our ‘Sankalp Patra’, we have promised to make Assam flood-free in the next 5 years,” he added.
The senior leader attacked Congress MP Rahul Gandhi over alliance with Badruddin Ajmal’s All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF).
“Rahul Baba is in Assam as a tourist nowadays. He says Badruddin Ajmal is Assam’s identity. You tell me if Ajmal is Assam’s identity or Bhupen Hazarika, Upendra Nath, and Shankar Dev are the state’s identity,” Shah further said.
The Union Minister also said that Ajmal can’t be Assam’s identity.
