Now, the saffron party is now caught on the wrong foot in Assam over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
Assam cabinet minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Wednesday met Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and announced that ‘good news’ regarding Assam was coming soon.
“Had a long discussion with him (Shah) about identity issues of Assamese, aspirations of our tribal communities and strengthening nationalist thought process in Northeast. Will hear some good news soon,” Sarma tweeted.
A meeting of BJP leaders was held in New Delhi on Wednesday, which was also attended by Himanta Biswa Sarma.
Amit Shah had chaired the meeting of the BJP and reportedly addressed the CAA outreach program issues.
But the BJP knows well that for its outreach program in Assam, and especially in the Brahmaputra Valley, there would be no takers.
The saffron party leaders are convinced that the sudden spark of Assam's anti-CAA movement snowballed into larger national protests.
The tweet from Himanta Biswa Sarma is a clear indication that the BJP is planning to douse the anti-CAA protests in Assam with "something big."
