New Delhi: The Congress, which has formed an alliance with the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) to assembly polls in Assam, mentioned that AIUDF chief Maulana Badruddin Ajmal is not anti-Hindu but he talks only in regards to the welfare of Muslims.“Speaking about the welfare of Muslims or the people of his own faith is not against the law unless he hates the people of different religions. Ajmal has never been anti-Hindu,” Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Ripun Bora told PTI.Bora questioned the silence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the implementation of the Citizenship Amendment Act in Assam. He maintained that Modi has visited the poll bound state twice in one month however he has mentioned nothing on CAA.
“The CAA is a serious concern for Assam. However why is the prime minister silent on it?” he asked.The Congress-led alliances include left and regional parties as well. Bora is the chief ministerial candidate of the said alliance.He mentioned that the BJP itself had entered into a pact with Ajmal’s party to capture powers in three district councils — Darrang, Karimganj and Nagaon. “The BJP has no moral right to lecture us on politics,” he mentioned.
He alleged that the BJP is “more communal” than every other party because it had formed a government in Jammu and Kashmir together with “anti-India forces” just like the PDP, which “doesn’t settle for the Indian structure and Indian flag”.“The PDP had declared Afzal Guru, who was hanged for the Parliament attack, a martyr,” he claimed.
