Dibrugarh: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi interacted with college students in Lahoal at Dibrugarh as a part of his 2-day poll campaign today. While Rahul Gandhi raised different issues among the youth from unemployment to farmer's protest, one thing which attracted the audience was the patta or gamcha he was wearing.
His Gamcha had a message for the people of Assam who have been opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act since the time it was introduced in Parliament. The piece of cloth he was wearing over his neck had CAA written on it with a cross over it. This is not the first time Rahul Gandhi wore such gamcha as the Congress leader imparted the same message to the people of Assam during his maiden visit to the state on 14th February 2021 ahead of the Assembly
During his election rally in Assam, Rahul Gandhi said, "You think democracy is declining. Youth is 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. One force, born in Nagpur, trying to control the whole country.
Rahul also encouraged the youth and students in politics and said, "Democracy means-voice of Assam should control Assam. If we don't include students then there can be no democracy. Youth should actively participate in politics & fight for Assam when you feel State is being robbed. You'll have to fight with love, not with stones, lathis."
This is the second time Gandhi ís campaigning in Assam.
Earlier, his sister and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had also campaigned for the party in the state and met tea estate workers.
Assembly elections in Assam are slated in three phases on March 27, April 1, and April 6, to elect the 126 member house.
The results will be out on May 2.
