Union finance minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Arun Jaitley today released party’s ‘vision document’ for the upcoming Assam Assembly elections.
While addressing the press, Jaitley said, “Assam Assembly elections are a historical opportunity to uproot the failed Congress government.”
Commenting on the party manifesto, the BJP leader asserted, “It is a vision document of what should be the roadmap for Assam from 2016 to 2025. Congress tried to destroy and change the demography of the state by encouraging infiltration. Congress has been doing it for many decades and took no action,”
“There is a desire for a change which is sweeping the state. People of Assam are tired of slogans and they want development. The youth here are craving for growth. The core strength of our alliance is the youth here and the youth is leading that campaign for a change,” union finance minister, said as he released the document.
The document — ‘BJP’s Assam Vision Document 2016–2025’ — promised a legislation to deal “sternly” with industries, businesses, Small and Medium Enterprises or any other agencies employing infiltrators.
Assam will vote in two-phases polling for the 126 Assembly seats. The first phase will be held on April 4 and the second phase will be held on April 11.
