Bangladeshis troubling northeast due to wrong governance: Modi

Agartala, Feb 22: Due to wrong governance, illeggal Bangladeshis are causing trouble for the people of the northeastern states, but due to governance in Gujarat, Pakistan has been facing problems, BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi said here Saturday.

“Due to the Bangladeshi people and incorrect governance, the people of the northeastern states are in trouble. But due to governance in Gujarat, Pakistan is now in awkward position,” the Gujarat chief minister said at a ‘Naba Chetana’ (fresh consciousness) rally here. It was his third in the northeast on Saturdday after Pasighat in Arunachal Pradesh and Silchar in Assam

Praising the erstwhile Tripura kings for keeping the state in the Indian Union, the BJP leader said that composers Sachin Dev Barman and Rahul Dev barman, who hailed from Tripura, had achieved nation glory through their works.

“The people of Gujarat voted BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) in power for three times, but the people of Tripura have been facing tremendous sufferings though they voted the Left Front many times,” he added.

“Left parties always want to keep the people in backward so that they remain their followers,” he added.

Criticising the possible formation of a Third Front, the BJP leader said it was always formed before the general elections but collapsed after that.

“Only the BJP’s model can make the country progress. This was proved by the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led government at the center,” the Gujarat chief minister said adding that the agricultural growth in his state was ten percent, the highest in the country.
