Hectic day for NE BJP

BJP workers across the north eastern region thronged Guwahati to hear Amit Shah on Tuesday ten months before the assembly polls in Assam.

Convened at the Machkhow ITA, the meeting of the state leadership will discuss the growing activities of the party in the eight north eastern states.

“His visit boosts our morale and we are encouraged to met him and listen to him,” said a senior BJP leader from Imphal.

Shah is scheduled to hold yet another meeting with Assam unit leadership to take stock of the party’s poll preparedness. Siddharth Bhatacharya, Sarbananda Sonowal along with other sitting MPs are attending the meeting.

Earlier at 10-30 in the morning Shah landed at the Borjhar airport to be received by the north eastern BJP leaders. After a brief halt, he arrived at the Machkhow ITA to attend the convention. He is scheduled to leave the city in the evening.
