Guwahati: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday, released its election manifesto for the forthcoming Assam Assembly elections. Saffron party president JP Nadda unveiled the document at an event in Guwahati, which was also witnessed by Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and state Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.

Nadda stated that the initiatives in the manifesto were to strengthen connectivity, infrastructure, education, health and women empowerment as part of the party’s aim for inclusive development.

One of the promises the BJP made was to work on “a corrected National Register of Citizens (NRC)”. Nadda said, “We will work on a corrected NRC for Assam’s protection. We will protect genuine Indian citizens and detect infiltrators to ensure the Ahom civilization stays safe.”

He further introduced Mission Brahmaputra, under which the saffron party will build big reservoirs around the river to conserve extra water and save the people in the time of floods

Similar to other partys’ aim, BJP also spoke about job opportunities for youth here and said Assam will become the fastest job creator state in the country. The party has promised to provide 2 lakh jobs in the public sector, of which 1 lakh will get jobs by March 31, 2022. It will also provide 8 lakh jobs in private sector.

The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA)— which caused widespread protests in Assam — was not mentioned in the manifesto.

Assam goes to polls in three phases; March 27, April 1 and April 6.
