GUWAHATI: With the Assembly election dates approaching fast, the ruling alliance in the State has intensified its political attack on the Opposition.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a function to release a book on the political journey of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said on Monday that the people of the State are now eagerly waiting for the election dates to cast their votes in favour of the BJP. He added that the people are convinced with the sincerity of the BJP-led alliance government to bring about peace and progress in the State.
"The Opposition parties are not having any clear-cut objective and principle to contest the ensuing Assembly polls. They are rather trying to create a confusing situation. The people have understood the Opposition's lopsided policy and principle.
"We had promised to free Assam from corruption, pollution, terrorism and illegal foreigners besides ushering in development. The people are satisfied with the sincere efforts of the BJP-led government on all these fronts," asserted the Chief Minister.
Sonowal and Union Minister of State for DoNER Jitendra Singh along with BJP national vice president Jay Panda on Monday released the Assamese version of a book on Union Home Minister Amit Shah. The book, titled ''Amit Shah and the March of BJP'', written by Anirban Ganguly, Director of Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee Research Foundation (SPMRF), has been translated into Assamese by State Finance, Health, PWD and Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.
Speaking to reporters after the book release function, Sarma said that going by the massive ways of peoples' participation in the BJP's election rallies and other functions, he does not see the relevance of the Opposition in the ensuing election.
"The Congress has polarized the elections by forging an alliance with the AIUDF. We fight this election on the issues of saving our civilization, ensuring development and security for the people. We are focusing on issues that touch the lives of common people," said Sarma.
