GUWAHATI: Tejashwi Yadav, leader of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) of Bihar which has tied a pre-poll knot with Congress-led ‘Mahajot’ in Assam assembly elections, dubbed the ‘double engine’ government led by BJP in the state as ‘useless’
Taking part in multiple poll rallies in Assam’s Cachar district on Saturday, Yadav, said that people across the country, as well as Assam, have become fed up with the BJP regime.
The former deputy chief minister of Bihar claimed that the saffron party practises the politics of hate.
“Inflation is at its peak, unemployment is at all-time high and rampant corruption is on. Despite BJP governments are there in Assam and at the Centre, it has failed to provide relief to the common people. It means the BJP’s double-engine government is useless,” he said.
Urging people to support the Congress-led Grand Alliance in Assam of which the RJD is a part, Yadav said, “Our alliance is committed to progressive, inclusive, development and welfare-oriented government in the state. Support the Mahajot for a better Assam.”
Remembering the reign of former chief minister Tarun Gogoi who died in November last year, the RJD leader said that it was during the Congress days that the state of Assam had transformed into a peaceful state and started marching ahead.
“During Congress time, the discussions were on development but now it’s only about hatred. The Mahajot has promised five guarantees which will be implemented without fail,” he said.
Yadav also reminded the people of the state not to forget the sacrifices of the five innocent people who were killed during the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) movement while casting their votes.
Congress leader Suhmita Dev accompanying Yadav added, “We are confident that this time people of Assam will vote for the Congress-led alliance. They will give a befitting reply to the BJP and its anti-people politics of neglect.”
Earlier, Yadav had also campaigned in Tinsukia district.
