Guwahati: On Thursday, BJP president Nitin Gadkari criticised the Assam government for the unabated incursion from across the border and said that the party will secure the international border of the country if it comes to power.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief was in Guwahati to flag off the Shahid Shradhanjali Yatra being undertaken by the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) from Guwahati to Tawang to celebrate the 50th anniversary of India-China war.
A total of 90 youths from 19 states of the country have joined in the Yatra, which will end at Tawang on October 21.
During the yatra, the BJYM activists will pass through Tezpur in Assam, Bomdi La, Dirang and reach Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh and hold public meetings at those places.
Gadkari accused the Congress-led governments at the centre and in Assam of opening up its borders for the infiltrators for ‘vote bank politics’ and said that no steps have been taken to secure the country’s porous borders.
