Other campaigners set to arrive include, National President BJP Amit Shah, Bapul Supriyo, BJP National General Secretary NE Ram Madhav, Rupa Ganguly, among others.
It is worth mentioning that at a press meet on Friday, 70 organizations openly condemned BJP and termed the party communal. They even went so far as to instigate the public against voting for the party. Reverting to the allegations, BJP Spokesperson Hemanga Baishya counter-alleged that the parties are agents of Congress and will say anything to demine BJP. “The Assamese population are with BJP and I am positive that we have better chances of winning this time”, Baishya remarked.
