Home Minister Amit Shah’s visit to Assam has been canceled after the Naxalites attack in Sukma-Bijapur in Chhattisgarh. Shah was scheduled to hold 3 rallies in Assam on Sunday before the third and final phase of polling in Assam. Shah’s rallies were to be held at Sarbhog, Bhabanipur and Jalukbari.
He said that search operation is going on right now. There is a loss on both sides. I salute the family of the soldiers. The martyrdom of soldiers will not be allowed to go in vain. The Home Minister said that I was yet to hold two rallies in Assam but now I am canceling my tour after the Chhattisgarh attack. I am going back to Delhi now. I will meet there to review the situation.
Rahul Gandhi has been attacked in the past as well
Earlier in Jonai, Shah targeted Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. He had said that I want to ask Rahul Gandhi that on the one hand the Congress talks about saving the identity of Assam and on the other side it is contesting with the party of a person who promotes infiltration here. He asked the Congress the question, how will Assam’s identity survive?
