Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley today said that there was a ‘double anti-incumbency’ factor against the ruling Congress prevailing in Assam and this time it would be a vote for change. “The defeat of the Congress is certain,” he told mediapersons during a press conference here today.
He said that the BJP was taking this election very seriously. “Unlike previous elections, BJP, as a party in the State has made amends and improved a lot. We are expecting to win in maximum seats in the State,” he said. On being asked about how many seats BJP was expecting to win in the Assembly polls, Jaitley said that the party would prefer giving the smile after the results. BJP is fielding candidates in 124 Assembly constituencies out of 126 seats in the State.
Jaitley said that the party would flood the campiagn with maximum leaders from the Centre and elsewhere to ensure victory for the party. We are determined to establish a strong base in the State, the BJP leader said. Criticising the Congress at the Centre for failing to control the price rise of commodities, the BJP leader said that the Central government had lost the enthusiasm to govern. “There is a drift in the Central government,” he said.
The corruption, price rise and infiltration would be the main issues during the poll campaign, Jaitley said, and added that the party would go out to the people with full strength. He said that the tribals and the economically backward people of the State were neglected by the government.
“The State government has done almost nothing to generate employment and develop the overall infrastructure,” the BJP leader said. The BJP leader was flanked with Guwahati MP Bijoya Chakraborty and Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar, Sushil Kumar Modi.
