In Assam, political activities have gradually started to gain momentum in the state ahead of assembly polls. BJP will start a series of dialogues called “Assam Nirman” from Friday.
Union Ministers will address a series of dialogues, called Assam Nirman, with groups of people across six cities in the State. The first will be addressed by Commerce Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in Guwahati.
“This programme was to have been attended by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, but he will now attend the next one in Lal Bari. The dialogue will focus on economic development and fund allocations for the north-eastern States and certain changes that have been made in the rules governing devolution of funds,” said a senior office-bearer of the party in Assam.
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will address a session in Dibrugarh, where illegal immigration will be the topic. In Jorhat, Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan will speak on issues of tea gardens.
The party is determined to project only local faces. However, as the polls approach, the party seems determined to pull out the big guns from its arsenal.
