A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi affirmed that Congress was supporting the producers of a ‘tool compartment’ who were plotting to obliterate Assam’s tea industry, Congress pioneer Priyanka Gandhi Vadra hit back saying he turned away when the state was confronting annihilating floods and wrestling with brutality over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and is presently overplaying a tweet by “a 22-year-old”.
On a two-day visit to the state, Priyanka was talking at a public gathering in Jorhat in Upper Assam. She later proceeded to address revitalizes in Khumtai in Golaghat area and Nazira in Sivasagar. Each of the three Assembly voting public will survey on March 27.
“I was tuning in to the Prime Minister’s discourse on Saturday when he said he was miserable about something. I thought he was going to raise a major issue. Yet, at that point he raised a tweet by a 22-year-elderly person,” Priyanka said.
Tending to a meeting in Chabua (Dibrugarh area) on Saturday, Modi raked up the tool compartment issue, saying it was a ploy to criticize India’s tea industry and Yoga on the worldwide stage. He blamed the Congress for being in cahoots with those plotting against tea and Yoga. While not taking names, he was alluding to the ‘tool stash’ that discovered notice in climate dissident Greta Thunberg’s new tweet and was imparted to her by individual environment lobbyist Disha Ravi. “Individuals of Assam and India won’t ever pardon the Congress for playing with the state’s tea, regard and pride, just as the existences of lakhs of tea laborers,” Modi said.
Reacting to the PM’s charge on Sunday, Priyanka said, “On the off chance that he is so bothered about a tweet by a 22-year-old, for what reason does he not feel something very similar about the Assam floods? Where was he when the state was reeling under obliterating floods and was on the bubble over CAA?”
Of the five key guarantees of the Congress in its Assam statement is a law to invalidate the CAA. The others incorporate five lakh government occupations, raising the every day pay of tea garden laborers to Rs 365, give let loose power to 200 units for each family and Rs 2,000 in month to month pay backing to homemakers.
Reprimanding the BJP for not following through on its guarantees, the Congress chief said, “Did they give you 25 lakh occupations? Did they secure your Jaati Maati Bheti? Did they execute Clause 6? None of these guarantees has been satisfied.”
Venturing her assault on PM Modi, Priyanka said, “The Prime Minister said the Congress had ‘offended Assamese individuals and culture.’ Now advise me, which gathering has given Assam a pioneer as extraordinary as Hiteshwar Saikia? Which gathering has given Assam a Chief Minister of Tarun Gogoi’s height? Both committed their lives to Assam and the Congress. Had they actually been near, they couldn’t ever have harmed Assam’s way of life. They couldn’t ever have gotten something like the CAA.”
On Modi’s guarantee of a “twofold motor” government, Priyanka said he was, maybe, alluding to the BJP’s “two boss clergymen” for Assam. She was indicating the apparent contention between account serve Himanta Biswa Sarma and Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal over a tough situation in the new government.
“They said you would get an Assamese boss clergyman, an administration that would be run from Assam. However, all things considered, you have an administration which is run from Delhi. Without Delhi’s consent, there is no hope in Assam,” Priyanka said.
Assaulting key territorial player and BJP’s partner Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), she said the gathering answers to the name of “Delhi Gana Parishad”.
Hitting out at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for offending fifteenth century Vaishnavite writer holy person Srimanta Sankardeva with his comment that he had “battled infiltrators”, Priyanka said, “Do they at any point know which century Sankardeva was conceived? Were there infiltrators at that point?”
“Actually the BJP would not like to zero in on main problems,” she said, adding, “They are occupied with selling Assam’s properties, its petroleum processing plants, its air terminal to their industry companions.”
