    Assam Polls: Congress launches ‘Assam Bachao’ social media video contest

    Participants have to post the video along with the hashtag #AssamBachao on any major social media platform and then submit its link through www.AssamBachao.in

    Assam Polls: Congress launches ‘Assam Bachao’ social media video contest

    Guwahati: The Congress party on Tuesday launched ‘Assam Bachao’, a video contest over social media, asking people of the state to make two-minute videos about the biggest issues and problems Assam is facing currently.

    The party has also kept attractive prizes on a daily basis for the participants.

    Launching the campaign, Congress MP and head of the Congress party’s manifesto committee Gaurav Gogoi, said, “The first step to solve a problem is to acknowledge and understand a problem. This campaign is for that first step. The feedback from this campaign will tell us what are the most urgent issues to be taken up in our manifesto. The Congress party’s manifesto shall offer solutions to these very problems.”

    To participate in the contest, people have to post the video along with the hashtag #AssamBachao on any major social media platform and then submit its link through www.AssamBachao.in

    “The prizes are to incentivise creativity among the youth of the state. It is time for the youth to take charge of their own future and save the state from the BJP’s evil designs. From sky-high prices of essential items to the BJP’s plans to implement CAA against the people’s wishes, they have decided to ruin both peace and prosperity in Assam. This video campaign is a call for the people to bring in public discussion all the issues facing the state and the people. This is important because the BJP doesn’t want them to discuss these issues,” Gogoi added.

    Congress leaders and workers across the state can participate in the campaign just like ordinary individuals.

    Hailing the initiative, state Congress President Ripun Bora said, “This is just the first step. The Congress party is gearing up for an innovative campaign that will bring out the people’s resentment against the BJP’s misrule. The BJP’s attempts to muzzle the people’s voices with intimidation and fear psychosis won’t last fill polling day. The people will show through the #AssamBachao campaign how desperate Assam is for change.”

    The contest shall run for next 10 days until February 19.
