During the two-day visit of Union Home Minister Amit Shah to the Northeast, the Home Minister assured that Assam will be” Andolan” (Agitation) and “Atankwad” (Terrorism) free within 2024. ‘BJP’s win in the March- April election in Assam indicated that the people of the state had chosen development’ said the Union Home Minister.
On Sunday in a public event held at Guwahati, Mr. Shah said thousands of youths of Assam had lost their lives while agitating but the state got nothing except losing lives. He further added ‘My analysis of our party forming the government for the second term is that Assam has given a mandate against Andolan (Agitation) and Atankwad (terrorism) and chose the path of development. This was his first visit to Assam after the second consecutive win by his party in Assam.
Mr. Shah also stated that “Assam witnessed the emergence of several new parties during the last election held in the state, and they also tried hard to prove themselves to the voters. But the people of Assam remained with BJP because they want their state to develop”.
Mr. Shah had also promised that all the clauses of the Bodoland Accord that was signed in January last year will be implemented before 2024.
