Assam Polls: BJP promoter of violence, says Rahul Gandhi

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government of promoting violence in states ruled by them.

“Wherever the Bharatiya Janata Party goes it tries to instigate violence among people, what will happen to development if violence returns in Assam. Our Prime Minister talks about ‘Vikaas’ wherever he goes. But in whichever state BJP wins, incidents of violence start erupting in the state,” Gandhi said while addressing a rally here in Assam’s Tinsukia district

Gandhi further questioned Prime Minister’s intentions of fighting corruption.

“If the Prime Minister is seriously fighting against corruption, then why did he bring the ‘Fair and lovely’ scheme?” said Gandhi.

“When Modi ji will visit Assam, he will not speak a word about black money, Mallya or Lalit Modi ji,” he added.

The Congress vice-president also said that there are two schools of thought in front of us – one is Congress and the other is a combination of BJP, RSS and Modi ji.

Meanwhile, Gandhi asserted that Assam is mini-India where one can find everything which is available across the country.

Making huge claims Gandhi said if voted back to power the Congress will provide merit-based scholarships to 100 students in each district for preparations of civil services exam and promised of providing rice at Rs 2 per kg. (ANI)
