 Assam Congress leader and party president Ripun Bora said that it was Congress that brought Assam out of conflict and militancy. Further, the Congress leader accused Union Home Minister Amit Shah of pushing Assam back to the days of conflict and militancy by introducing the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), reports The Assam Sentinel. 

Taking a jibe at the Union Home Minister Amit Shah, the Congress leader took to the micro-blogging site- Twitter and wrote, It was the @INCAssam that brought Assam out of conflict and militancy. It was @AmitShah ‘s CAA that pushed Assam back into conflict, curfews, and violence. Without peace there can be no progress. Assam wants Congress back.” In a rally held at Nagaon, Assam on February 2021, Amit Shah said that Assam was earlier known for arms, agitation and violence, however, under the BJP led government it will be known for ‘development, investment, education and tourism thereby contributing immensely to the nation’s GDP’. 

Shah said this after attending the ‘Mahayagya’ at the Shivling shaped Maha Mritunjaya temple that is believed to be the world’s tallest temple in the world. “It was a privilege to participate in the Pran Pratishtha Festival of 126 feet high Shivalinga at the Mahamrityunjaya temple in Nagaon (Assam)”, Shah said in a tweet. Shah arrived in Guwahati on Wednesday night where he was received by Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Cabinet Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.

The Home Minister will visit the Bordowa Satra, the birthplace of saint-scholar and socio-religious reformer Srimanta Sankardev and attend a public rally. With the upcoming election, political parties have intensified their campaigning in the state. Elections for the 126 member assembly are likely to be held in April this year.
