"You can ask people of Assam, the election is on identity and development," Sarma said.

Sarma also mocked the Congress partyfor promising that CAA will not implemented in Assam if they come to power.

"I think they have a huge majority in the Parliament and they can decide," Sarma replied sarcastically.

"It will be ensured in the state assembly that the CAA is not implemented in Assam," he said, adding that they will stop the implemention on a national level too if they come to power.
