Modi leads Assam campaign ahead of polls

Guwahati, March 26 (IANS) Prime Minister Narender Modi on Saturday said development of Assam was high on his agenda as he kicked off the BJP campaign in the border state that goes to polls early next month to elect a new government.

“Our party has three agendas: development, speedy development and overall development,” Modi said, addressing a rally in Tinsukia district.

He urged the people to give the BJP a chance to rule the state for next five years and asked them to question what the current Congress government has done in the last 15 years of its rule.

“The people of Assam have the right to ask the government where their money went,” he said

Modi also hailed BJP chief ministerial candidate Sarbananda Sonowal, saying Assam will get a young chief minister if the BJP is voted to power.

He announced that his party aimed at providing “education to the poor, employment to the youth and medicines to the senior citizens”.

A total of 1.98 crore voters will elect legislators for the 126 seats contested in Assam. Polls will be held in two phases on April 4 and April 11.
