Days after 40 CRPF jawans were killed in a suicide attack in Kashmir's Pulwama, BJP president Amit Shah on Sunday said the sacrifices of the soldiers would not go in vain as the BJP government, unlike the erstwhile Congress dispensation, would not compromise on any security issue. He also slammed the opposition Congress and its former ally Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) for implementing the Assam Accord despite ruling most of the period since signing of the pact in 1985. "We will not allow Assam to become another Kashmir. That is why we have brought NRC (National Register of Citizens). We will deport each and every infiltrator with the help of NRC. We are committed to that," he added.
I'm grateful to the people of Assam, who braved adverse weather and came in large numbers at "Yuva Pravah" Vijay Lakshya-2019 Rally in North Lakhimpur. pic.twitter.com/a9YWBIZjv0— Amit Shah (@AmitShah) February 17, 2019
Sub-text - we’ve made a complete mess of Kashmir in our 5 years in power. We will try not to make the same mess in Assam. https://t.co/L6nCShX45s— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) February 17, 2019
