Election 2021 Live Updates: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today cautioned the people of Assam against voting for the Congress. He said that today, Congress has joined hand with those who are set to destroy the identity of Assam. The PM said that Congress can do anything for votes as they can stand with anyone and can even betray anyone. PM Modi said that the Indo-Bangla Border in Dhubri is now sealed to tackle illegal infiltrators. Earlier today, PM Modi campaigned in Bengal. He said that the BJP will make every scheme in Bengal scam-free and will end the culture of cut-money. He said that West Bengal has brought together the nation through ‘Vande Mataram’, and on this land, CM Mamata Banerjee was terming people “bohiragoto” or outsider. He announced that if voted to power, a son of the soil will be made the BJP chief minister of the state. Addressing an election rally in Kanthi in the Purba Medinipur district, Modi said that Bengal was the land of icons like Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, Rabindranath Tagore and Subhas Chandra Bose and on this land, no Indian was an outsider.

Meanwhile, compounding the Congress worries in poll-bound Kerala, P M Suresh Babu, a former KPCC general secretary, resigned from the Congress yesterday and declared that he intends to join the CPI(M)-led LDF camp. The move comes a day after veteran party leader K C Rosakutty called it quits. On the other hand, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address an election meeting on March 30 at Dharapuram (Tamil Nadu) from where BJP State unit president L Murugan is contesting the April 6 assembly elections. Modi, who launched the party campaign here on February 25, is expected to arrive at the city airport at 10.20 AM and leave by helicopter for Dharapuram in the Tirupur district, the sources said. After the meeting, the prime minister will return to the city around 2.20 PM and leave for Chennai.

    In Assam, senior BJP leader Yogi Adityanath accused the opposition Congress of indulging in "divisive politics" that led to the Partition of the country in 1947 and "having the same mindset" now as evident from its alliance with the AIUDF to fight the coming state polls in Assam. Addressing a series of election rallies in Barak valley of poll-bound Assam, Adityanath, also the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister asserted, the country was "forced" to be divided in 1947 because of the Congress' pursuit of power. On the other hand, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who has been pushing for Nyuntam Aay Yojana (NYAY) -- a proposed minimum income guarantee scheme, on Tuesday promised people in poll bound Kerala that the scheme will be "tested" in Kerala if the party-led UDF is voted to power.
