Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi at an election rally in Karbianglong, Assam on Tuesday said that Congress’ biggest contribution to the state has been the fact that they brought peace to Assam.

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.” he said.

Gandhi said wherever BJP has gone it has brought violence and has disturbed the peace and cited the example of Haryana, where within months of its coming to power there was violence between jats and non-jats.

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. While BJP wanted one kind of thought to be imposed across the country it was Congress that took everyone along and did not want anyone suppressed, irrespective of one’s religion, caste or area, he said.
