BJP president JP Nadda at Kamakhya temple in Guwahati

BJP president JP Nadda on August 29 said that the Congress party is on a “rapid downfall” due to lack of integration between local and national aspirants.

Addressing Bharatiya Janata Party workers in Guwahati on August 29, JP Nadda said that people who have been associated with the Congress party for more than 40 years are leaving because they realised it is a family party only.

“People who have been members of the Congress party for more than 40 years are leaving the party. These people have now realized that the Congress party is now just a family gathering and is no longer on a national or state level,” JP Nadda said.

While addressing the party workers at ITA Center in Guwahati, Nadda also said BJP has broken the record of victory in all the elections that were held after chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma formed the government in Assam.

“I congratulate the party members of Assam and chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on breaking the record of winning in all the Assam elections after forming the government,” he said.

In Assam, five BJP offices have been established, while construction of the remaining 18 offices is in full motion. Every district in Assam will have a BJP office, he said.

“BJP is making steady progress. We never imagined that we would form the government in the Northeast or in Assam, we are happy that we are not only forming the government but also prioritizing development,” JP Nadda said.

He further lauded prime minister Narendra Modi’s “Act East” programme and said the infrastructure in the Northeast has got a significant boost under the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government.
