BJP National President, Shri Amit Shah fiercely attack on the 15 years of corruption and bad governance of Congress reckoning illegal migration from Bangladesh a big reason for the plight of Assam in a Press Conference, today, held in Guwahati. He urged people of the state to form a full majority BJP-led NDA government under the leadership of Shri Sarbananda Sonowal for development in Assam and to make it completely free from corruption and Bangladeshi infiltration.

BJP President said, our alliance is for the development of Assam. He said, our objective is not just to form a government in Assam, but the overall development of the state moving ahead with the principle of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ under the leadership of Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi. He said, we are committed to uplift the lives of all tribes of Assam.

He said, the most important and serious issue of the state is the illegal infiltration from Bangladesh. Insisting on this issue, he said, we have promised a complete solution of this problem in our vision document released for Assam. He said, Bangladeshi infiltration is a big threat to the future of Assamese youth and the folk culture of the state. Assuring to the people of the state, Shri Shah said, we will completely seal its border with Bangladesh and update the National Register of Citizens in a time-bound and accelerated manner as we come in power in the state. He said, the BJP-led government will resolve the Bangladeshi infiltration issue once and for all. Taking a dig at the Congress party for its "failure" to deal with the illegal migration problem, Shri Shah said, our leaders asked the Congress party, its president, Smt. Sonia Gandhi and vice president, Rahul Gandhi umpteen times to clear their policy and stance on this issue so that people of the state could decide on this issue easily but they are absolutely silent. He said, their silence is raising so many questions. Lashing out at Tarun Gogoi, Shri Shah said, in October, 2013, Tarun Gogoi has published a white paper saying that there was no Bangladeshi intruders in Assam, what greater thing could be funny from this, it pointed to the fact that it is indicative, in which approach Congress is dealing this issue. He said, if this is the case, I think the Congress could never solve this problem. He said, Congress reckon Bangladeshi infiltrators as their vote bank and wants to win the election in Assam through its petty politics.

In response to a question, Shri Shah said, “there is no issue in sealing Assam's porous border with Bangladesh to make state free from infiltration because the border agreement deal with Bangladesh has been finalized peacefully, as we assumed power in the Centre which was pending from many years.” Shri Shah said that the western part of the country is completely free from infiltration because most of the states have BJP governments. Insisting on this issue, he said, if there were Congress governments in those states, infiltration issue could not ever resolved yet. He said, Assam needs a government which can stop intrusion completely, could send infiltrators back legally by identifying them, could move Assam on the path of development and only the BJP government can do it.

Accusing Gogoi of being responsible for the backwardness of the state, Shri Shah said, Congress is ruling the state since 15 years, Congress-led UPA were ruling the country for 10 years, even PM from Assam was leading the country for 10 years but Assam is still far behind in development, then who is responsible for this plight of Assam? He said, many states have marched aggressively on the path of development, many states are writing history in growth, BJP states have established a new standard of development but nothing has happened in Assam, still over one crore people are living under the Below Poverty Line (BPL), there is no clean water for drinking for 42% people, more than one-third people are deprived of electricity, education and primary health facility. Modi government at the Centre sends millions of rupees to the state for its development but it lost to the corruption of Congress rather of the development of Assam. He said, Gogoi government is not able to submit even the work completion report for more than 50% projects, in this scenario, it is pointless to cherish any expectation for the development of Assam from current Congress government. Shri Shah said, we have outlined the plans for the development of Assam in our vision document and committed for it accordingly.

Shri Shah said, we will investigate all the corruption charges against Congress government. Taking a dig at Tarun Gogoi government, he said, the state government is bellyful sinked in corruption and Shri Tarun Gogoi Ji is personally involved in it, in such a bizarre, Gogoi ji accusing BJP for corruption is baseless, laughable in itself and indicative of his negative politics. He said, CBI will investigate all the chit fund scams, the state government will also examine it at their level and strict action will be taken on those who found guilty. He promised the electorates that the BJP would give a corruption-free transparent government in Assam.

BJP President said, we have focused our attention on the development of the Northeast region whenever the BJP-led governments came into power at the Centre. Recounting a slew of developmental measures taken by the NDA government for the growth of the Northeast region, he said, we have allocated a large proportion of the budget for the rail and road connectivity in the Northeast region. He said, a new ministry were formed particularly for this at the time of Shri Atal Ji government, we have made special arrangement to protect students from North-East in Delhi and we are implementing various measures to curb soil erosion and flood in this reason.

BJP President, Shri Amit Shah said, our election campaign has been successful in Assam, we have addressed approximately 415 public meetings and we are confident that the BJP government will be formed in the state definitely. He said, “I've come here to urge the people of Assam to form a strong and a decisive government in Assam, make BJP-led NDA government under the leadership of Shri Sarbananda Sonowal with two-third majority. I assure you that Assam will move ahead on the path of development together with Centre and will write a new chapter of development in Assam.”
