Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma thanked the people of Dhekiajuli for coming out in large numbers during an election rally on April 4.

He said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) made resolutions for the development of Dhekiajuli and will execute them in the coming days.

Speaking to reporters, CM Sarma said: “Two nominations were done in Assam today. I did a rally in Dhekiajuli where people came in huge numbers in support of PM Modi. I have never seen such support in my political career. I am grateful to the people of Assam.”

“During the elections, we can only make resolutions. We made resolutions for the development of Dhekiajuli. Going ahead, we will execute those resolutions,” he added.

Earlier, CM Sarma took a dig at the Congress party amid several leaders leaving Congress to join BJP, and asked Rahul Gandhi to join the BJP saying that the Congress has become synonymous with old notes.

“Everyday people from Congress are joining BJP. The Congress headquarters is vacant now. Before demonetisation, we had old notes. If you go to the market with old notes nobody will not accept it. Congress has become synonymous with old notes…I am inviting him (Rahul Gandhi) because if he comes then the remaining people (of Congress) will also come to BJP. Last time he helped us by coming to Assam,” he said.

The Assam CM along with state BJP president Bhabesh Kalita, and UPPL chief Pramod Boro took part in a roadshow in Udalguri during the nomination submission of Dilip Saikia, BJP candidate for Darrang-Udalguri Lok Sabha constituency.

The polling for the 14 seats in Assam will be held in three phases on April 19, April 26 and May 7. The counting of the votes will be done on June 4.
