 Stage set for Assam first phase elections

Guwahati: Eminent film director and social activist Mahesh Bhatt said that secularism is in my blood and I cannot imagine India other than being secular.

 

He said that the core ideology of the Congress is secularism and that’s motivated me to come over Assam and appeal for supporting the Congress in the current Assembly Elections.

 

He said that the Congress appointed Sachar Commission and later took steps for implementing its recommendations along with serving the weaker sections of the masses, so it should be given another chance in Assam to form the government to maintain the continuity.

 

Mahesh Bhatt was addressing the press meet called by Aligarh Muslim University Community [AMU] based NGO of the intellectuals, teachers and scholars of the AMU, the Millat Bedari Muhim Committee [MBMC] Aligarh as part of its ‘Karwan-e Bedari’ [travelling to awaken the masses].

Mahesh Bhatt pointed out that every political party or individual has some weak points but its finer side should not be over looked.

 

He said that Congress is the only political party which has trust of all sections of the Indian citizenry.

 

He called upon local intellengecia and masses to crush rising tide of communalism and separatism.

 

It should be noted that MBMC has extended its full support to the Congress and has declared to work tirelessly to make it victorious in the current assembly elections.
 

The first phase of elections in Assam is scheduled for April when 62 of the 126 constituencies will go to poll. An estimated 485 candidates are in the fray for the first phase of whom 38 are women. The second phase of voting for the remaining 64 constituencies is on April 11.

 

Results are due May 13.
