Assam Assembly Elections: Darkness ahead if Congress voted to power, says JP Nadda

Guwahati, 22 Mar (PTI): BJP national president J P Nadda on Monday accused the Congress of practising “politics of opportunism” and said Assam will head into days of “darkness” if the opposition party is voted to power.

Addressing an election rally at Tingkhong in Dibrugarh district, he said the BJP has always been at the forefront to protect and serve the people of Assam.

“The Congress’ only aim is politics of opportunism. They are with the Muslim League and fighting against the CPI(M) in Kerala, but joined hands with it in West Bengal and Assam,” Nadda said.

Like a tusker, the Congress has “two teeth” — one to show off and another to chew, he said.

“The Congress says something and always does the opposite… It is dividing the society,” the senior BJP leader said.

Repeatedly attacking the Congress, he said the opposition party “means darkness” while the BJP stands for development.

“If you need darkness, then go with the Congress. But if you need development, hold the hands of Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” Nadda said at the rally.
