Guwahati, Feb 9 (PTI) With the Assam Assembly election round the corner in Assam, the Congress on Tuesday launched a campaign in which it invited people of the BJP-ruled state to make two-minute-videos on problems facing it.

The Congress' manifesto for the state poll will offer solutions to these problems, the party's manifesto committee head Gaurav Gogoi told a press conference here.

The first step to solve a problem is to acknowledge and understand it, he said.

Announcing prizes ranging from I-phone to cash, Gogoi, the deputy leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha, said they will be an incentive for the youths to engage creatively, take charge of their own future and save the state from BJP's 'evil designs'.

'From sky high prices of essential items to BJP's plans to implement Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) against the people's wishes - they have decided to ruin the peace and prosperity in Assam', Gogoi said.

The video campaign is a call to the people to discuss all issues facing the state and the people. 'This is important because the BJP does not want to discuss these issues', he added.

Assam Congress President Ripun Bora said that this is the first step and the party is gearing for an innovative campaign that will 'bring out the people's resentment against BJP's misrule'.

The contest will conitnue till February 19 and people will have to post the video with the hashtag #AssamBachao on any major social media platform and then submit its link through www.AssamBachao.in. PTI DG KK KK KK
