BJP President Amit Shah on Thursday, 28 March, said only Prime Minister Narendra Modi can protect the borders of the country, not the Congress party and its chief Rahul Gandhi.

Criticising the Congress party for “asking for proof on the Balakot air strikes in Pakistan”, he claimed that India has become that the country in the world after the US and Israel to take revenge for its soldiers’ blood.

“Should we not take revenge of our soldiers’ blood? The Congress cannot protect the country’s border. Only Narendra Modi and BJP can do that.”

He also said that in 10 years of Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh government, “our soldiers’ heads were chopped off”.

Shah also slammed the former Tarun Gogoi-led Assam Congress government in the state for allegedly settling illegal immigrants inside the Kaziranga National Park.

Gogoi, Ajmal Have Reached an Understanding: Shah

Shah also alleged that Gogoi has reached an understanding with AIUDF chief Badruddin Ajmal to ensure his son Gaurav Gogoi’s victory in the coming Lok Sabha elections in the state.

Addressing his second rally in Jorhat, Shah said that Gogoi and Ajmal fights during the day to show people that they are opponents “but do ‘ILU-ILU’ at night”. In urban lingo, ‘ILU’ stands for I love you.

Shah also said, “What does this mean? It means that they (Tarun Gogoi and Badruddin Ajmal) plan to fill Assam with illegal migrants for the win of Gogoi’s son Gaurav.”

BJP has launched a blitzkrieg against Congress in Assam alleging a secret understanding with AUIDF. Ajmal's party had announced that it would contest only three seats out of the total 14 in Assam.

Gaurav is the sitting MP from Kaliabor seat and is seeking a re-election for the second term from the same constituency.

“If we want to develop Assam, then infiltration has to stop. Congress cannot do that. Only Narendra Modi, Sarbananda Sonowal and Himanta Biswa Sarma can do,” Shah claimed.
