Congress president Rahul Gandhi on February 26 asserted that his party will protect the culture, history and language of the northeast if voted to power. Kicking off the poll campaign in Assam, Gandhi attacked the BJP and the RSS, accusing them of "burning" every state in the region.

"The BJP-RSS ideology is burning every state in the northeast. They are attacking your lifestyle, culture, language and history...," he said.

Gandhi exuded confidence that the Congress will come to power at the Centre and work towards protecting the identity of the region.

He also promised to restore 'special status' to Assam and bring back the North East Industrial and Investment Promotion Policy (NEIIPP).
