Jorhat: Addressing an election rally here, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi said on Monday that elections were due in Assam and soon BJP would come give speeches and make false promises like PM Narendra Modi had done earlier.
He added, "Narendra Modi ji give huge speeches, 'Make in India', 'Clean India', every other day they launch a new slogan. Is there one person who has got a job because of Modi ji?"
"PM ran away from Bihar after the elections. These are the same people who fired three bullets in Mahatama Gandhi's heart, there are the same people who sought forgiveness from the British," Rahul said.
Earlier, in another rally in Assam, Congress VP attacked BJP and RSS, saying they wanted to control everyone's views and follow the agenda of creating divide and hatred among people.
"BJP and RSS are following the agenda of creating divide and hatred, as can be seen from the recent developments in JNU, by imposing their views forcibly on people," Gandhi said at a party meeting here in Assam's Sonitpur district, as per PTI.
He alleged, "BJP and RSS have no respect for the diversity of the nation's culture and sentiments of the people. They just want that everybody follow their views.
"They find terrorism everywhere, even in universities and brand anybody who do not agree with their views as terrorists."
BJP has over the years followed the policy of "creating a divide between Hindus and Muslims, branding the latter as terrorists. They followed the same policy in Assam by creating divide among the Bodos and adivasis during the 2014 attack on the latter", he alleged.
"Congress is just not like that. We have respect for all culture and believe in harmony, brotherhood, unity and amity among all sections of people," Gandhi said.
