‘The BJP is starting a campaign today – #AarNoiAnnay – to defeat autocratic forces in Bengal’

Amit Shah – Union Home Minister:

  • BJP had received 87 lakh votes in 2014. In 2019, your love for us increased and we got 2.3 crore votes under the leadership of PM Modi. I’m proud to say that the 18 MPs from the State are trying to transform Bengal by representing it in the Parliament.
  • I think this journey has just started. It will end when we form the government after Vidhan Sabha polls with a 2/3rd majority.
  • This journey is for empowering the poor in the state, for making its law and order better, for ending syndicate, for ending infiltration and for providing citizenship to our refugees.
  • We weren’t given permissions for political rallies and over 40 of our workers were killed. I want to ask CM Mamata Di – Have you been able to stop us by doing this?
  • The BJP is starting a campaign today – #AarNoiAnnay. This campaign is the fight to defeat autocratic forces in Bengal. I want to tell every Bengali today that we won’t accept any injustice anymore.
  • Mamata Di raised the issue of citizenship to refugees herself when she was in Opposition. When PM Modi brought the CAA, she is standing with the Congress and Communists in Opposition again.
  • I assure every person from the minority class that CAA only provides citizenship, and takes nothing away. It won’t affect you in any way.
  • These persecuted people have been living in their own country as outsiders for 70 years and we should give them citizenship.
  • You gave chances to Communists for 2 decades, and to Mamata Di for 10 years. Did they develop the state? No. Give us five years, we will turn Bengal into Sonar Bangla.

Himanta Biswa Sarma @himantabiswa – Minister, Govt of Assam:

  • Another feather in Assam’s cap! Glad to have performed Bhoomi Puja for construction of 6-lane iconic bridge over Brahmaputra, along with CM Sarbanand Sonwal.
  • The 1600-m long bridge over Brahmaputra shall be key to growth of Assam State Capital Region, a 6000 sq km area, by expanding Guwahati Metropolitan area to the North Bank.
  • It shall also reduce travel time between North & South Banks to 15 minutes.
  • The Bridge corridor starts from Bharalumukh on the South Bank to NH 31, near Gauripur, on the North Bank.
  • The project includes 3-lane elevated road running along the South Bank (1450m) & 6-lane road & via-duct on the North Bank (5230m).
  • The upcoming 6-lane bridge over Brahmaputra is a matter great personal pride as it addresses long overdue issue of connectivity, congestion & pollution, besides loss of productivity, for people of Guwahati.
  • Friends from Guwahati & North Guwahati have called me to compliment.
