Chhattisgarh model will not work in Assam: BJP VP



BJP Vice President and former Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh Raman Singh on Tuesday said Congress Chhattisgarh Model will not work in Assam.

“Congress is misleading the people by launching Chhattisgarh model. The Congress government has failed in the last two years to implement the Chhattisgarh model which they have committed during the polls,” Raman Singh said while addressing a press conference in Dibrugarh on Tuesday.

Singh lambasted Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel for giving fake assurances to the people of Chhattisgarh.

“Our BJP president JP Nadda today (March 23) released the ‘Sankalp Patra’ (party’s manifesto) for the upcoming Assembly election in Assam and we have mentioned 10 important assurances which will be fulfilled during the second tenure of BJP government in Assam,” Singh said.

Meanwhile, Bhupesh Baghel has been campaigning for Congress candidates in upper Assam. Baghel addressed many poll rallies in the upper Assam area. Baghel criticised BJP for failing to fulfil the promises.

“The Congress top brass has sent Bhupesh Baghel as the election observer of Assam to launch Chhattisgarh Model in Assam and to win seats for the ensuing polls. Only time will tell how far the Chhattisgarh model will work in Assam,” said BJP leader.

“Congress is not clear on their stand on CAA (Citizenship Amendment Act) because in the parliament they said nothing on the issue. Congress is a double standard party with no ideology,” Singh said.

“If their party is voted to power again in Assam, they will start dredging the Brahmaputra to solve the flood and erosion problem,” Singh added.
