BJP general secretary Ram Madhav, addressing a mass gathering of BJP booth Presidents and elected representatives in Guwahati, expressed confidence that the BJP will win the 2020 polls in a landslide victory, while also assuring that the people will not face any danger as long as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in power at the Centre.
Speaking on the lines of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, Madhav said, "There are a lot of discussions on the C(A)B. Many people, understanding the true. The first category does not understand the C(A)B fully; the second category does not want to understand; the third category cannot even understand.
There are some politicians in India that are knowledge-proof and infiormation-proof. They are protesting for futile reasons. In some places, protests are being held for communal reasons.
"In regards to Assam, I admit that the people of Assam are not protesting for political reasons. There are doubts and apprehensions", Madhav said, adding that it is the responsibility of the BJP to assuage the people and resolve the people's doubts. "It is the responsibility of the BJP karyakartas to assure the people that the 'CAA' does not pose any dangers", Madhav said.
Stating that a misinformation campaign is being conducted in Assam against the 'CAA', Madhav said, "Anybody who comes after 2014, regardless of religion, will be earmarked as a foreigner."
"Till Modi is there in Delhi, not a single person in Assam will be touched. There is no danger for Assam till Modi is the PM", said Ram Madhav, recalling a promise the PM Minister had made in Assam before the party came to power in the state.
Ram Madhav also lauded the Assam state unit of the BJP, under Ranjeet Dass, of strengthening the sangathan (organization) at the booth-level.
