Continuing agitation a concern, but farmer unions' 'obdurate' stand shows vested interests at play: BJP leaders

IndiaTimes Friday, 22 January 2021
Several party leaders said that protesting farmers' "all-or-nothing" approach and their warning to further intensify the agitation may actually help the government in the battle of perceptions, especially when it has become clear that the Centre made a big climbdown by offering to put the laws on hold for up to two years and when the Supreme Court has also formed a panel to resolve the crisis.

‘Cong polarised Assam's poll environment by aligning with AIUDF’: Himanta

Senior Assam Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma alleged that Congress communally polarised the assembly election environment in the northeastern state by joining hands with Badruddin Ajmal-led AIUDF. Himanta said opposition party has made this poll into a ‘conflict of civilisation’ by aligning with the AIUDF. “Yes, it will positively impact us. It will lead to complete polarisation because people of Assam will not vote for the AIUDF. So, by forming an alliance with a communal party, the Congress has polarised the elections completely. The BJP's campaign for the assembly polls in the northeastern state will focus on 'surakshya' (security), 'sabhayata' (civilisation) and 'vikas' (development),” said Sarma eplying to a question on the possible impact of the Congress-AIUDF alliance.
