Rahul Gandhi challenges Assam CM, says not afraid of police case


 Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday virtually challenged Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, asserting that he is not afraid of any police FIR registered against him.

“The Assam CM may register an FIR against me, but I’m not afraid of the Assam CM,” Gandhi said addressing a public meeting in North Barpeta as part of his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, a day after the state police filed a case against him on various charges including rioting, criminal conspiracy, wanton acts of violence and damaging public property.

Gandhi said he had a shelter in every Indian family.

He criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and the Assam Chief Minister, saying “The politics of hate is prevalent in the country. This reflects the ideology of BJP and RSS.

“We have brought the message of love in the market of hatred,” he added.

He claimed that Sarma, who is constantly spreading hatred, has allegedly amassed all the wealth of Assam by instilling fear in the people.

Referring to Sarma as the “most corrupt” CM in the country, he asserted that a leader who governs Assam through intimidation holds no significance in Delhi.

He said: “Sarma follows whatever Amit Shah states. No criticism is tolerated against Amit Shah. Consequently, the concerns of the people of Assam hold no significance under such leadership “

The Congress workers took Gandhi in a large procession from Amolapatty in Barpeta town to the meeting venue in North Barpeta. From there, he proceeded to Abhayapuri, accompanied by Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi, Leader of Opposition in the Assam Assembly Debabrata Saikia, and CPI (M) MLA Manoranjan Talukdar.
