Quotes

...of BJP leaders in Delhi are aware of machinations "at the local level" that led to the defeat of party veteran Kabindra Purkayastha from Silchar. "BJP established its toehold in Assam through Barak valley, but both Barak valley seats, Karimganj and Silchar are not with us" a key party leader says
In a statement issued to the press on July 26, AGP president Atul Bora said: "Though the erstwhile NDA Government led by Atal Behari Vajpayee included the Brahmaputra in his river–linking project, he couldn’t materialize it due to opposition from various parties of Assam. Of late, the Narendra Modi–led NDA Government at the Centre is out to hatch a conspiracy involving the Brahmaputra, basis of the civilization in Assam, in the river–linking project. With this move, the NDA government at the Centre has exposed its policy of squeezing the natural resources of Assam depriving the people of the state of its benefits."
