'2016 battle of Saraighat will be between two civilizations, two cultures'
From a Correspondent
GAON, Jan 5: “Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi talks about reecting the historical battle of Saraighat in the 2016 elections. But actually in that battle, Gogoi will be commander-in-chief Ram Singha and AIUDF chief Badaruddin Ajmal will play the role of Mir Jumla. The real battle of Saraighat will be faced only by BJP in which the commander-in-chief will be Bir Lacit Borphukan and the warrior will be a man like Bagh Hazarika,” said Union Minister and BJP State president Sarbanda Sonowal said on Tuesday while addressing a party booth committee open rally organized by gaon district Yuva Morcha at gaon Nehrubali field in gaon town.
Sonowal took a dig at Chief Minister Gogoi and alleged that during his tenure, the State Government had cheated the youth community of the State and inspired them to get involved in corruption or other anomalies. “But BJP will never allow them to succeed in their evil designs, “he said.
Sonowal further criticized Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and said that Gogoi always boasted about bringing in development in the State. “If this is true then why need big hoardings to attract voters?” he questioned.
Earlier in the same rally Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma stated that the year 2016 had brought a special time for the integrated Assamese community and its rich and colourful culture. “This time we have to face another Battle of Saraighat and it will be the last battle of Saraighat for redemption of the Assamese tion and its culture in Assam,” Sarma said.
Sarma said that the Battle of Saraighat in 2016 would not be between the BJP and the Congress, rather it would be the battle between two civilizations, between two cultures and it would be the last battle for the Assamese. “We will never let the foreigners or even the rhino poachers or the killers of rhinos to control and rule in Assam politics. Chief Minister Gogoi does not support the public movement against the rhino poaching, i.e. he is also getting the commission from the poachers. If he is not getting the commission then he should lead the movement soon,” Sarma lashed out at Gogoi.
On the other hand, Himanta Biswa Sarma criticized even Badaruddin Ajmal as the prime enemy of the integrated and greater Assamese tion.
