Assam Polls: BJP & alliance is winning, says CM Sonowal
Ahead of the crucial first phase of the Assam Assembly elections on March 27, which would decide the fate of even Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, who would contest from Majuli, Sonowal exuded confidence of the BJP and its alliance partners winning the elections.
Sonowal made the statement while inaugurating the Assamese version of the Biography of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, translated by his Cabinet Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.
"We are winning; we are forming the next government in the state. That's all. That's very clear. The people of Assam are very much happy in our last five-year performance. The security of life and property, peace in the state has been provided by the BJP-led government (in the last) five years," Sonowal said.
"The work for nomination paper submission has been started. And talking with the people of Assam, I felt that the public feels that the BJP should come back to power. The people feel that BJP has taken Assam to new heights in line with development," he said.
"We had promised a pollution-free, developed Assam, corruption-free Assam, terrorism-free Assam, infiltrator-free Assam. We have worked on all of these points with sincerity and, this has made the people believe that BJP has worked for the people of Assam."
"The people of Assam have witnessed the ill ideology of opposition parties. They have pushed the situation to chaos. The parties which lack a proper ideology and goal can never ensure development," Sonowal said.
The BJP is in alliance with Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and the United People's Party Liberal (UPPL).
