Rangapara: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday that there was a strong wind of change in Assam which would uproot Congress and its 15 years of misrule.
Addressing a rally here he said, "Congress need to tell what they have done in last 60 years for Assam. Why has this place not received the development it deserves? Who has made Assam poor? I will repay your love with development in Assam."
"In last five manifesto of Congress they have just reshuffled their promises. None of which is fulfilled. For 15 years people reposed faith in Congress but they betrayed the people and their aspirations. A person who's visually impaired, who can't see at all, can also figure out if a road is concrete or not," he added.
The PM went on to say, "The doors of bank were open for the rich. When banks were nationalised, it was said that it was done for the poor people. However, the poor were deprived. I have tightened the screw and will ensure that the money looted from the banks are brought back. I have opened the doors of the bank for poor."
PM Modi further said, "We work on three agenda, development, development at fast pace and Development everywhere."
He also said, "By 2022, everyone will have their own home. We will spend more than 2000 crore for the development of this region."
"On election day, press the right button for development so that people start saying 'A for Assam'," the PM said.
He said people of India gave a decisive mandate to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the 2014 Lok sabha polls and now India was getting applauded worldwide.
"If you want to listen to the same applause for Assam, vote for absolute majority to BJP and its allies in the forthcoming polls," he said.
On Saturday, PM Modi kick-started the Bharatiya Janata Party's campaign in the poll-bound Assam by addressing four public rallies and a citizens' meeting in four districts of the state.
The two-phase assembly polls in Assam's 126 constituencies are scheduled to take place on April 4 and April 11.
