Guwahati, 07 April, 2016: My press release during Assam election campaigning:

Union Minister and senior BJP leader Shri Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi has said that “secular political termite of corruption” has destroyed the progress and welfare of poor Muslims of the country.

While addressing huge public meetings at Bilasipara, Mankachar and Golakganj during campaigning for Assam Assembly elections on Wednesday, Shri Naqvi said that increase in the percentage of Muslims living below the poverty line during the last five decades at the Centre and during last few decades in the states like Assam and West Bengal, which have a large Muslim population, proves that “vote politics of secularism” during last several decades has severely affected the poor Muslims.

Shri Naqvi said that the backwardness of Indian Muslims in education and employment is a “dangerous part of secular political conspiracy”. Because, some political parties including the Congress, think that they can politically exploit the Muslims by creating a feeling of insecurity among them by keeping the community illiterate and poor.

Shri Naqvi said that “walls of secularism and communalism and fabricated political issues” were raised to prevent the light of development from reaching to the poor people of the Muslim community.

Shri Naqvi said that, had the amount “spent on the papers” in the name of socio-economic-educational empowerment of Minorities, been spent honestly at the ground level, there should not have been a single person belonging to these sections, below the poverty line. But the money meant for development of poor, reached to the vaults of “power-brokers, middlemen and corrupt”.

Shri Naqvi said that the Modi Government took steps to ensure “blockade of power-brokers and lockout of loot lobby from power corridors of Delhi”. Our Government has established a system to monitor that every penny meant for development of poor, is being spend honestly.

Shri Naqvi said that those who allowed loot of rights of poor people during the last 15 years in Assam will not be spared. Those who hold poor people’s development “hostage”, will be punished strictly.

Shri Naqvi assured the people of Assam that the BJP is the guarantee of security, safety and prosperity of all sections of the society including the Minorities. “The vote given to the BJP will proved to be an attack on political termite of corruption”.
