The Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday released its manifesto for Assam Assembly polls and promised to work on a corrected National Register of Citizens (NRC) for state’s protection.
The manifesto, released by BJP National President JP Nadda, promised to protect “genuine Indian citizens and to detect infiltrators” to ensure the Ahom civilization stays safe.
“We will work on a corrected NRC for Assam’s protection. We will protect genuine Indian citizens and detect infiltrators to ensure the Ahom civilization stays safe. To protect Assam’s political rights, we will speed up the delimitation process,” the BJP chief said while releasing the manifesto.
Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Tuesday said that if the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is voted to power, it would bring an error-free National Register of Citizens (NRC) and ensure that no “illegal migrant” is staying in the state.
“When we started five years back, we faced challenges like ensuring good governance and making Assam free from corruption, extremists and illegal migrants. The Congress has proved to be a failure. What they could not do in their 60-year rule, we have done in five years,” Sonowal told news agency ANI.
The manifesto also promised to build big reservoirs around the Bramhaputra River to conserve extra water under the “Bramhaputra Vision” to save people from floods.
“30 lakh deserving families will be paid financial support of Rs 3,000 per month under Orunodoi Scheme,” the manifesto said.
