DIPHU: Asking voters in Assam to reject BJP in the Assembly polls, Rahul Gandhi today said if it came to power, the state will be run from the RSS headquarters in Nagpur or the PMO.
He also warned the people that BJP will only stoke violence in the state and end the atmosphere of peace ushered in by Congress.
“We want everyone should think and should act for one’s culture, language and that no one is suppressed in the country. What does BJP want in Assam. First they will come and ask for your votes and then Assam will not be run from here, but will be run from Nagpur or the Prime Minister’s Office,” he said addressing a poll rally here in Karbi district.
Gandhi said wherever BJP has gone it has brought violence and has disturbed peace and cited the example of Haryana where within months of its coming to power there was violence between jats and non-jats.
“The truth is wherever BJP goes, it tries to make people fight with each other. For example in Haryana, for 10 years there was peace and no violence or anger was there when Congress was in power, but within months of BJP coming to power there was violence and jats and non-jats are fighting with each other.
“You have seen what has happened in Gujarat. In Bihar they tried to bring violence before polls and in Assam too they are trying to spread violence. They will end the peace that has come here after violence stopped. They don’t think about you or Assam, they just want to impose one ideology and thought on the entire country, what RSS people say,” he said.
Gandhi also accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of making false promises and said the people of Bihar have sent him packing in a “direct flight” from the state as he failed to fulfil any of the promises made to them during Lok Sabha polls.
