Chief Minister of Assam Himanta Biswa Sharma while campaigning for candidates of the Indigenous Peoples’ Front Of Twipra (IPFT), an alliance partner of BJP, said there may be a lotus in your heart but cast the vote in ‘Takkal’ symbol for greater interest. He was addressing a public meeting at Jolaibari School Ground.
There was some dispute on the ruling front as many of the BJP leaders and workers protested against allotting the seat in favour of IPFT and three of them filed nominations also. However, two of them subsequently withdraw the nomination while another one was cancelled.
Himanta was aware of that and said we are all soldiers of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and our main task is to strengthen his hand. Prime Minister has decided to give this seat to IPFT and it is our duty to ensure their victory. He said those who bear a lotus in their hearts must cast their vote for Takkal as it is the wish of our Prime Minister. We must strengthen his hand for the betterment of our future and our state.
