SILCHAR, April 21 � There has been enough negative politics in Barak Valley and the State. Political parties, especially the Congress has kept the burning issues �alive� to make political gains fooling the people with fake and illusive promises instead of making efforts to find solutions. But the Bharatiya Janata Party does not follow such impractical policies, said Siddhartha Bhattacharya, the State president of the BJP. In his words, �the BJP believes in positive politics. It strives for solutions to problems.�
Addressing the party members and cadres here at a function organised by the Cachar district BJP to felicitate its newly- elected civic board commissioners of both Silchar and Lakhipur Municipal Boards, Bhattacharya said the Narendra Modi Government has a positive and proactive approach towards the issues faced by the people of India. The party will never compromise on the issues bothering the electors for its electoral prospects, he added. The BJP has always made its stand clear on the NRC. No Hindu coming to India will be deprived of citizenship and no Hindu will be harassed in the name of NRC in Assam.
Blaming the Congress for its dual politics in the name of �secularism�, Bhattacharya said that it is because of the Congress, India had to be divided on the basis of religion.
However, even as Bhattacharya said that his party echoes for maintaining same yardstick for evaluating the NRC, the State president stood his ground saying �people residing in the territory of Assam are Assamese.� He informed that the BJP national president Amit Shah will visit Guwahati on April 26 and hinted that a large contingent of top shot leaders from other political parties are coming into BJP.
On the other hand, Mahendra Singh, the BJP observer for Assam has alleged that parties which are thoroughly confused about their own roots are in the mad craze of putting �D� against the names of genuine voters. He assured the people of Barak Valley not to be perturbed by the sly ways of the Congress in the NRC. Dr Rajdip Roy informed the gathering on the various dimensions of NRC while other BJP leaders including former minister Kabindra Purakyastha urged the cadres to work together to achieve the target �Mission 84� in the forthcoming 2016 Assembly elections in the State.
