GUWAHATI, Sept 11: With Northeast mission – making the region free from Congress – in sight BJP’s tiol president Amit Shah is arriving in the Northeast on September 28.

Soon after arriving at Borjhar airport in Guwahati on September 28, Shah will go straight to Meghalaya. From there he will leave for galand and then back to Assam on September 30. The itinerary of the visit is still to be given its fil shape.

The North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), the political formation led by the BJP and other parties of the Northeast, had its meeting at New Delhi on September 5, 2017. The meeting pledged to free the Northeastern States from the Congress. The BJP is in power in Assam, Aruchal Pradesh and Manipur. It is in the ruling coalition with other parties in Mizoram and galand. While Meghalaya is under the Congress, Tripura has a government under the Left parties. Meghalaya, Mizoram, Tripura and galand will have Assembly elections in 2018. And this has made the visit of Shah to the region all the more significant for the BJP and NEDA member parties in the region.

Shah was to visit all States of the country before the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. He has already visited a number of States in the country and took stock of the party’s preparedness and organizations. He was supposed to visit Assam earlier in August this year. However, that schedule had to be cancelled.

During his stay in the Northeast, Shah is going to interact with the local leaders and take stock of the poll preparations and other issues like seat-sharing and electoral understanding in the forthcoming Assembly elections in the north-eastern States.

According Assam State BJP sources, Shah is to take stock of the organization and preparedness of the party for the ensuing panchayat poll in Assam. “We’ve assured Shah of performing better in the constituencies where the BJP faced defeat in the last Lok Sabha polls in Assam. Shah himself will take stock of our preparation towards that end. He’s also going to interact with grassroots-level party workers of the State,” the sources said.
