He further emphasised that there is no democracy without students and advised them to actively participate in politics.

If Congress comes to power in Assam, then it will do away with the implementation of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), party leader Rahul Gandhi said on Friday in the poll-bound state.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who arrived in the state on a two-day campaign began with an interaction with students at a college in Lahowal in Dibrugarh and met tea garden workers at Dinjoy tea estate in Dibrugarh.

Addressing tea workers, Gandhi said: “BJP promised Rs 365, but gives Rs 167 to Assam tea workers. I’m not Narendra Modi, I don’t lie. Today, we give you five guarantees; Rs 365 for tea workers, we’ll stand against CAA, 5 lakh jobs, 200 units free electricity and Rs 2000 for housewives.”

The Wayanad MP was seen in a shirt that sported a crossed-out CAA in big letters.

The Congress leader will be releasing the party’s manifesto tomorrow when he is scheduled to address two more election rallies.

During his interaction with students in Dibrugarh earlier, the Wayanad MP also hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging that the latter visited the state only during election time.

“During flood, you cannot give him anything so he does not come but during elections, you can give him votes, so he comes,” Gandhi said.

Further he attacked the BJP at the Centre for “unemployment amongst youth, the declining democracy and the farm law protest.

Gandhi said, “Democracy is declining. Youth are unemployed, farmers are protesting, CAA is there. We can’t ask the people of Assam to forget their culture, language if they come to Delhi. People from different cultures, languages, religions make up India. One force, born in Nagpur, trying to control the whole country. If the country’s future (students) cannot openly talk to the Prime Minister, then there is no doubt that something somewhere is wrong.”

He further emphasised that there is no democracy without students and advised them to actively participate in politics.
