Speaking about the promises made by the Congress to improve the condition of tea workers, PM Modi said that the Congress party did nothing for those working in the tea gardens when in power. “In 15 years, they could not even take the Tea Workers wages till Rs 100,” said the PM.
PM Modi alleged that Congress never worked for the upliftment of tea garden workers while the NDA government has increased and doubled their wages. “Immediately after coming to power, we will work extensively to make their life better. NDA government is committed to providing a dignified life to the women of Tea Garden areas,” said the PM.
The BJP leader said that Congress can do anything for votes. “Today, Congress’s hand is with those who are set to destroy the identity of Assam. Congress can do anything for votes. They can stand with anyone and can even betray anyone,” he alleged.
“The Congress, which has been a symbol of discrimination against indigenous people of Assam, is asking people to hand over Assam to them again. I have come to wake you up today. Congress has its hands with such people, whose basis is to destroy the identity of Assam. Will you let this happen? Will you let your culture and tradition be destroyed?” said PM Modi.
PM Modi claimed that those Satras and Namghars of Assam were captured by illegal immigrants during Congress rule, are now free from encroachments and even Assam’s pride – Kaziranga has been freed from the clutches of Congress and its cronies.
Talking about illegal migrants, PM Modi said, “Indo-Bangla Border in Dhubri is now sealed, to tackle illegal infiltrators.”
He said that Lakhimpur is famous for Bao Dhan (Red Rice) and under Atma Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, the BJP government is working to take this rice to the world. He also claimed that the BJP has built 8 medical colleges in the last five years.
