Guwahati, March 14 : Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said that developmental activities have stepped up in Assam as insurgency and terror have declined in the state over the years.
Addressing his maiden election rally in Biswanath district bordering Arunachal Pradesh, he said that with hundreds of extremists belonging to dozens of insurgent groups laying down their arms in the last five years of Bharatiya Janata Party rule, peace and ethnic harmony has returned to Assam after several decades.
Noting that the BJP-led government had sealed a major portion of the India-Bangladesh border and installed electronic surveillance and devices along the riverine stretches in Dhubri, he said that if the BJP retains power, it would seal the remaining parts of the border to prevent entry of illegal Bangladeshis into India.
The BJP government in Tripura also took steps to stop illegal influx from the neighbouring country, he noted.
“BJP has a government in Tripura. With your blessings and support, we are confident that we are going to form governments in Assam and West Bengal,” Rajnath Singh said.
Listing the projects and schemes implemented by the Central and Assam governments, he said: “For the firt time in the history of India, under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi (PM-KISAN), each farmer in India is getting Rs 6,000 directly into his bank account.”
