Assembly Election 2021 NEWS UPDATES
The BJP has stepped up its attack on the opposition in Assam and Bengal. On Wednesday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath held Congress responsible for lack of development and illegal influx in the North East and rise of militancy in Kashmir in its quest for power. Addressing a poll campaign rally in Hojai, Yogi charged the Congress of ignoring the people's welfare and development of the region in its quest for power. Adityanath said the northeast looked for development under the successive Congress governments. "But no development took place as progress was not on their agenda." "Congress never worked for development and progress of the region or the country's unity or welfare of the people, but only to grab power. This forced the people here to endure its misrule for a long time and the problem of illegal migration in the area," he said.
