Guwahati, February 11, 2019
Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) legislator from Kamalpur legislative constituency Satyabrat Kalita on February 11th, 2019 slammed the Prime Minister Narendra Modi for ‘betraying’ the people of the state and said the PM has become ‘terrorist’ for the people of the state. “He (Narendra Modi) has become a terrorist for the people of the state who comes to Assam to spread terrorism,” Kalita said.
He also said that the people of Assam voted in favour of the BJP in 2014 general election and elected the BJP in the 2016 Assembly election doing trust on Modi’s promises. “But, Modi has betrayed the people of the state by not fulfilling the promises made before the elections,” Kalita said.
“Modi, who had promised during 2014 LS election campaign to solve the illegal Bangladeshi issue, has been striving to bring the illegal Bangladeshis by implementing the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. On the other hand, the BJP-led central government has not done anything till date to implement the 1985 Assam Accord. The BJP government has done nothing for the people of the state,” Kalita added.
Besides, Kalita, while slamming the Assam Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for his statement over All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) that AASU leaders should take a bath in the holy river Ganga, said, “Nobody should forget his past. Sarma is also from AASU. So, he should remember the fact before making any comment on AASU.”
