In Kokrajhar, PM Modi says Assam will show red card to Congress and its allies Yesterday, the entire state of Assam saw in a video how the identity of Assam, the symbol of the hardwork of the women of Assam 'Gamosa' was insulted publicly: PM
People of Assam trust NDA for development and peace, says PM Modi in Kokrajhar
Congress has handed over its 'hand' and fortune to leaders of that party which had pushed Kokrajhar into violence: PM Modi on Cong-AIUDF alliance

Ahead of the third and last phase of assembly elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses a public rally in Assam's Kokrajhar today. He said, “Football is very popular among youth here. If I have to speak in their language, I would say that the people have yet again shown a Red Card to Congress and its Mahajot. People of Assam trust NDA for development, peace, security of the state.”

Targeting the Congress-led grand alliance named Mahajot, PM Modi said that this is an election between the 'Maha jhooth' of Mahajot and 'Maha Vikas' of Double Engine.

Talking about the land allotment certificates given to the indigenous people, PM Modi stated, “From providing land pattas to over 3.25 lakh families, increase rates of workers to making life of women working in tea gardens, the NDA government has tried to bring all-round development in Assam.” PM Modi alleged that Congress never worked for the upliftment of tea garden workers while the NDA government has increased and doubled their wages.

Attacking Congress and AIUDF alliance, Prime Minister Modi asserted, “Congress has handed over its 'hand' and fortune to leaders of that party which had pushed Kokrajhar into violence. Congress is dreaming of coming to power in Assam with the help of those people whom it had saved for its vote bank.”

“Yesterday, the entire state of Assam saw in a video how the identity of Assam, the symbol of the hardwork of the women of Assam 'Gamosa' was insulted publicly. Everyone who loves Assam is hurt and angry after seeing those pictures,” said PM Modi while speaking in Kokrajhar

Speaking about the centre’s development work, the Prime Minister remarked, “Medical college is being setup in Kokrajhar at a rapid pace. A package of Rs 1,500 crore has also been provided for development.
Bodoland University, Central Institute of Technology, Bodoland Bhawan and several other institutions are becoming the identity of this region.”

“The government of double engine is essential for the continued development of Assam. That is, NDA government at the center and NDA government in the state. When strength of both will be combined, more work will be done,” he added.

The Prime Minister also highlighted that every poor family has been provided toilets, he said, “Now we are working hard on providing clean drinking water. Nearly 4.5 lakh tap water connections have already been provided. From railways, roadways to air connectivity, everything is being improved in this region today. Thousands of houses have been built in Kokrajhar for the poor and needy.”

The Prime Minister expressed confidence that the NDA will form the government in Assam and said people have stamped the victory in the previous phase of polling.

Artefacts include cultural antiquities and figurines related to Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism
Endeavour embodies continuous efforts by the Modi Government to bring back our antiquities & artefacts from across the world
Most of the items belong to the period of 11th CE to 14th CE as well as historic antiquities belonging to Before Common Era

157 artefacts & antiquities were handed over by the United States during Prime Minister Modi’s visit. PM conveyed his deep appreciation for the repatriation of antiquities to India by the United States. PM Modi & President Biden committed to strengthen their efforts to combat the theft, illicit trade and trafficking of cultural objects.

The list of 157 artefacts includes a diverse set to items ranging from the one and a half metre bas relief panel of Revanta in sandstone of the 10th CE to the 8.5cm tall, exquisite bronze Nataraja from the 12th CE. The items largely belong to the period of 11th CE to 14th CE as well as historic antiquities such as the copper anthropomorphic object of 2000 BC or the terracotta vase from the 2nd CE. Some 45 antiquities belong to the Before Common Era.

While half of the artifacts (71) are cultural, the other half consists of figurines which relate to Hinduism (60), Buddhism (16) and Jainism (9).

Their make spreads across metal, stone and terracotta. The bronze collection primarily contains ornate figurines of the well-known postures of Lakshmi Narayana, Buddha, Vishnu, Siva Parvathi and the 24 Jain Tirthankaras and the less common Kankalamurti, Brahmi and Nandikesa besides other unnamed deities and divine figures.

The motifs include religious sculptures from Hinduism (Three headed Brahma, Chariot Driving Surya, Vishnu and his Consorts, Siva as Dakshinamurti, Dancing Ganesha etc), Buddhism (Standing Buddha, Boddhisattva Majushri, Tara) and Jainism (Jain Tirthankara, Padmasana Tirthankara, Jaina Choubisi) as well as secular motifs (Amorphous couple in Samabhanga, Chowri Bearer, Female playing drum etc).

There are 56 terracotta pieces (Vase 2nd CE, Pair of Deer 12th CE, Bust of Female 14th CE) and an 18th CE sword with sheath with inscription mentioning Guru Hargovind Singh in Persian).

This continues the efforts by the Modi Government to bring back our antiquities & artefacts from across the world.
