Mahesh Bhatt campaigns for Congress in Assam
Noted film director Mahesh Bhatt said that he supports the core idea of Cong and not what it has failed to keep.
Guwahati: Noted film director Mahesh Bhatt on Sunday jumped into the Assam poll campaign and appealed to the minorities to put their weight behind the Congress.
"Because of its history and its human resources the Congress has the depth and base to solve the problems of the minorities problems of the 21st century suited to a particular state," asserted Bhatt talking to the media in Guwahati.
On allegations about the Congress using the minority community as a vote bank, he said, "Congress president Sonia Gandhi has fought for the welfare of the minorities. When Sonia is in the helm of affairs of the Congress, she will do something for the minorities."
"I support the core idea of Congress and not what it has failed to keep. The UPA government constituted the Sachar Committee and is stepping up community welfare measures," Bhatt added.
Reminded that he had earlier campaigned in Assam for the NCP and AUDF but now for the Congress, Bhatt said, "I have decided to put my weight behind a political party whose core idea to keep the nation going is something I support. I endorse the ideology".
