    Assam Polls: PM Modi has a ‘Dil Ka Connection’ with Assam; Here’s what it’s

    Chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal said that this poll season has become a celebration of fast development that people have witnessed in the last few years

    GUWAHATI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday set a ‘Dil ka Connection’ (connection to heart) in Assam’s Karimganj located in the Barak valley.

    Modi who was on a repeated visit to the poll-bound state to campaign for BJP said that it’s the BJP government that has connected the Assam’s Brahmaputra and Barak valley in a better way like never before and shortened the distance between the places and hearts of people of the regions with its rapid infrastructure and connectivity growth during its last tenure in the state.

    “Today, Barak valley is connected to the rest of the state and the country via road, rail and airways. It’s happened only because of BJP’s ‘double engine’ government. The way BJP has treated the northeast and its interests were not done ever. BJP and the people of the region have set a ‘Dil ka connection’ already,” the PM said in his speech.

    Coming down heavily on Congress and Badruddin Ajmal’s All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) alliance, Modi labeled the Congress party as ‘confuse’.

    “The party (Congress) which distanced itself from AIUDF earlier has an alliance with the party now just for vote bank politics. The party doesn’t have an ideology. For power, they are aligning with parties that the party had once criticized. They are confused. But BJP is firm in its ideology which is ‘growth’. Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas is our vision and aim,” he added.

    Adding to him, chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal said that this poll season has become a celebration of fast development that people have witnessed in the last few years.

    Sonowal said, “For the first time in decades, the entire Assam will fight this election as a united force against the divisive, pro-appeasement and anti-national forces who had kept Assam divided, neglected and underdeveloped for ages. Assam will scale newer heights of progress in the coming days with the blessings of the people and under the guidance of the PM Modi.”

    Elections will be held in Assam in three phases on March 27, April 1 and April 6.
