Dhanbad: PM Narendra Modi on Thursday devoted much of his speech at a Jharkhand election rally to allaying fears of northeastern states, especially Assam, regarding the Citizenship Amendment Bill.

“I want to assure every state, every tribal society in the northeast and the eastern part of the country, including Assam, that preserving their culture is our priority,” Modi said in Dhanbad. “Today, I appeal to my brothers and sisters of Assam to have faith in Modi. No harm will come to them and their tradition, culture and way of living.”

“Confusion is being created over CAB by Congress and its allies. I appeal the people of northeast not to get influenced by these people,” he said. “Congress has lost faith in tribals, Dalits… They are now depending on the votes of only one community and lying on CAB.”

RAHUL TARGETS PM MODI

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi addressed two rallies in Rajmahal and Mahagama in Jharkhand where he said: “Narendra Modi wants an India that is scared. He wants the people of India to be weak and divided. He has become the prime minister only by dividing people on the basis of religion, caste and region.”
