PM Narendra Modi Halts Speech in Assam, Sends PMO Medical Team to Check BJP Worker Who Fainted:

In his speech in Assam before the third and final phase of voting on April 6, PM Modi hit out at the 'Mahajot', a grand alliance led by the Congress for working in favour of a particular community. He said that working for a particular section is called "secularism" while working for everyone without discrimination makes you "communal."

"We work for everyone without discrimination but some people divide the country for vote bank, which is unfortunately called secularism. But if we work for everyone, it's called communal. Games of secularism, communalism have caused great damage to the country," PM Modi said.

The Congress, which was in power for 15 years in the state till 2016, is contesting the three-phase polls as part of a 'Mahajot' grand alliance with the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF), Bodoland People's Front, the Anchalik Gana Morcha, the Communist Party of India (Marxist), the CPI and the CPI-ML. The results will be declared on May 2.
