It is our duty to protect persecuted minorities from neighbouring Islamic nations: PM Modi in Assam

Narendra Modi also said that his government has always attempted to rid the state and the country of illegal immigrants and is working towards sealing the entire Indo-Bangladesh border.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a rally in Changsari, Assam today where he targeted the Opposition over its failings to implement the Assam accord and spoke in defense of the Citizenship Amendment Bill.

The NDA government was committed towards the implementation of the Assam accord, Modi said. As per the provisions of the accord, a Bill has been brought to provide Scheduled Tribe status to 6 Assamese communities, he stated.

Taking a dig at the proposed Mahagathbandhan by the opposition parties, PM Modi asserted that the only thing that the ‘MahaMilavat’ coalition is concerned about is abusing him and that the corrupt are panic-stricken after the Chowkidar’s actions.

Narendra Modi also said that his government has always attempted to rid the state and the country of illegal immigrants and is working towards sealing the entire Indo-Bangladesh border. He also said Congress governments were unwilling to implement the NRC which the NDA government has done.

The Prime Minister also asserted that it was India’s duty to provide shelter to people who have suffered immense oppression in the neighbouring countries due to their non-Islamic faith. He argued that the Citizenship Amendment Bill was directed towards serving this purpose.

“Citizenship Bill issue is not related only to Northeast or Assam — it is for people who want to live by their faith and for that have to save their lives and escape and come to Maa Bharti. What they had to undergo you can understand when you meet them,” he said.

With elections approaching fast, Narendra Modi has escalated his attacks on the Opposition immensely. Yesterday, in a rally at West Bengal, he had targeted Mamata Banerjee for tarnishing the reputation of Bengal and labeled her government as the second coming of the Communist regime. And in his address in the Lok Sabha recently, he had directly accused the Congress party of undermining the defense preparedness of our Armed Forces due to vested interests.
