Absolute majority in kitty after phase 6, will cross 300-seat mark: Amit  Shah | Hindustan Times

Guwahati, Feb 25: Union home minister Amit Shah on Thursday asked people of Assam to vote for BJP again and promised to make the state flood free in the next five years. 

"We want to make Assam flood free...Modiji wants to make Assam flood free. People of Assam has to face the wrath of flood every year. The work in this regard has started. Satellite mapping is underway to identify places where water can be diverted to create big big lakes for irrigation and to make them into tourism centres. So vote BJP to power again, we will bring relief from flood in the next five years," Shah said while addressing the gathering at Batadrava, the birth place of Srimanta Sankardeb, the neo-Vaishnavite saint of 15th century, in central Assam's Nagaon district. 

Shah's promise about solving flood problem comes after Congress-led "grand alliance" of six opposition parties asked on Monday why Prime Minister Modi was silent on solving Assam's long flood problem. Modi on Monday had addressed a gathering at Silapathar in Dhemaji, a flood-affected district in North Assam but did not say anything about flood. 

Claiming that BJP and its ally Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) can only solve the infiltration problem in Assam, Shah asked, "Can Congress stop infiltration when they are sitting with Badruddin Ajmal? They are sitting with Ajmal and talking about stoping infiltration. Can they stop killing of the rhinos in Assam?"

Shah's jibe at Congress comes at a time when the "grand alliance" has made CAA its biggest poll plank against BJP. They have been alleging that BJP would destroy identity of the Assam's ethnic communities by offering citizenship to large number of post-1971 Hindu migrants from Bangladesh, through the CAA.

Alleging that Congress did nothing to solve Assam's problems, Shah said what BJP-led government did for Assam in the past five years, Congress could not do in 70 years.

Talking about the two new parties, which came into being out of the anti-CAA agitation (Assam Jatiya Parishad and Raijor Dal), Shah said, "Their purpose is to cut votes of BJP and help Congress win. Congress government had opened fire on those who were fighting against the foreigners during the Assam Agitation (1979-1985), and now unfortunately they are helping Congress. People of Assam are not fools. They knows only BJP and AGP can stop infiltration and bring development. The process of real development in the entire Northeast has started during Modiji's tenure," Shah said.

"We will make Assam number 1 state in the country (in terms of development) in five years," Shah further promised.

K'taka budget to focus on development, women: CM - Social News XYZ

Bengaluru, Mar 1: Putting behind the travails of the Covid-19 pandemic that disrupted normal life for nearly a year, Karnataka budget for fiscal 2021-22 would focus more on development works and women's welfare, said state Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Sunday.

"The state budget for the ensuing fiscal will give priority to development works and women's welfare. This is my assurance to all women in the state," said Yediyurappa in Kannada at a public event at Soraba in Karnataka's Shivamogga district.

The month-long budget session of the state legislature will begin on March 4 and Yediyurappa, who holds the finance portfolio, will present his 8th budget on March 8 in the legislative assembly.

The year-long pandemic, which invaded the southern state on March 8, 2020, stalled most of the development works though allocations were made in the budget for fiscal 2020-21 but could not be spent due to Covid-induced lockdown and restrictions to prevent the virus spread.

"Besides coronavirus, heavy rains and floods during the extended southwest monsoon in August-October have also reduced tax collections and revenue mobilisation, as the economy was unlocked gradually and the new normal set in to check the pandemic," recalled Yediyuarappa on the occasion.

The BJP-ruled state government resorted to borrowings and raised loans to augment resources for the development works since November as more funds were used in fighting the Covid war over the last 10 months.
