Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma claimed that the northeastern region, which “barely saw development” under Congress rule, is marching towards prosperity under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Tripura: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has referred to the Congress as “old currency notes,” claiming that the country has been moving in the wrong path for the past 75 years due to the grand old party’s “non-performance.”

He said that under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s guidance, the northeastern area, which “barely saw progress” under Congress control, is advancing toward wealth.

“The Congress has devolved into old currency notes that no one wants to touch because they are useless,” he declared late Sunday at a BJP by-election campaign rally in the Agartala assembly constituency.

Senior BJP leader Ashok Sinha has been nominated for the seat, where he will face off against Congress heavyweight contender Sudip Roy Barman.

“The country stepped backwards for 75 years because of Congress’s non-performance. For a Rajdhani Express, Tripura had to wait for so many years. Now, the northeast is marching ahead towards prosperity,” the Assam CM said.

Biplab Kumar Deb, a former Tripura chief minister, also addressed during the event.

Due to inclement weather, Mr Sarma, who landed in Agartala on Sunday morning to begin his campaign, was unable to speak at two scheduled rallies in North Tripura and Dhalai districts for by-elections to the Yubarajnagar and Surma assembly constituencies, respectively.

He did, however, lead a road show in the Town Bardowali Assembly constituency in favour of Chief Minister Manik Saha, who is running for re-election.

The North-East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) chairman, addressing the Congress, joked that the party had been losing elections one after another since 2014.

The Assam chief minister urged citizens to vote for BJP candidates in the by-elections for all four assembly seats in Tripura, and he asked for ten years to transform the state.

The Assam chief minister urged electors to vote for BJP candidates in the by-elections for all four assembly seats in Tripura, saying it would take 10 years to transform the state into a completely new and developed state.

On June 23, by-polls for four assembly segments will be held. On June 26th, the votes will be counted.
