“Why do you want to harm the original identity, culture and civilization of Assam? Is Modi ji planning to implement this Act after the Bidhan Sabha election in Assam? Modi promised to implement CAA in West Bengal. On the other hand, they said their government will not implement CAA in Tamil Nadu but why is Modi ji silent in the context of Assam? Why this double standard?” Surjewala mentioned.
In a state, identified for its tradition, tolerance, moderation, goodwill and concord, he mentioned up to now 5 years, to quench their thirst for energy in Assam, not solely had BJP sown seeds of division, but in addition “attacked” the language and land of Assam via CAA.

He had appealed to the public to vote and they would build a bridge over the Brahmaputra. Today, we want to ask why there was no development on it. Now, on the eve of Assam assembly polls, why are they serving up lies by doing “bhoomi poojan” of the bridge from Majuli to Jorhat, which is able to price Rs 925.47 crore?” Surjewala requested.
The stories of 1,300 km of expressway on each banks of the Brahmaputra at Rs 40,000 crore raised expectations excessive among the many folks of Assam in 2017. The Congress chief, nevertheless, mentioned on February eight, the Rajya Sabha disclosed that there was no proposal to construct an expressway on the 2 banks of the Brahmaputra.

In the last three years, the women of Assam have fallen prey to 80,794 cases. BJP has made Assam the hub of child trafficking. Half of this type of crime happens in Assam only. How will you answer about the crime against women?” he mentioned.
“Modiji had promised people of the state that of the 63.25 lakh rural families, 59 lakh will get water under the Jal Jeevan scheme but after three years why are 56 lakh families still deprived of this scheme?” Surjewala puzzled.
