Guwahati, December 6: All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) chief Badruddin Ajmal on Thursday slammed the Congress and ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alleging betray of the indigenous people of the state.
Ajmal, who was addressing a panchayat election campaign at Jania in Barpeta district, said “the BJP and Congress are two sides of the same coin”.
Talking to the media persons here, Ajmal said, “BJP has betrayed the indigenous people of the state by striving to bring in Hindu Bangladeshis by implementing the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016. Congress, on the other hand, had ruined the state in its 15 years of rule.”
Moreover, the AIUDF chief also slammed both the party over corruption.
Lashing out at the BJP over its much hyped slogan ‘zero-tolerance in corruption’, he said, “BJP has failed to curb corruption in the state as well as to fulfill the promises made before 2014 Lok Sabha poll and 2016 Assembly poll.”
Ajmal also strongly condemned the Asom Gana Parishad’s ‘double standard’ role over Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016.
AGP is in alliance with the ruling party BJP in the state.
Besides, Ajmal was seemed confident of the party’s impressive performance in the panchayat election this year.
It may be mentioned that AIUDF was the second largest party in the state with 72 ZPC members while Congress had swept the 2013 state panchayat election with clear majority.
