"In Northeast there is a danger of identity crisis from China, Bangladesh and Myanmar. Small neighbouring countries are challenging a big super power like India", Rijiju claimed before reporters here on the sidelines of the two-day BJP meeting chaired by its president Rajnath Singh.
The BJP leader said the identity crisis was due to illegal migration from Bangladesh into the northeast, Chinese intrusion in Arunachal Pradesh and by Myanmar in Manipur recently.
"For India's protection, the Northeast has to be protected. Congress cannot save our identity. BJP is the only party which can protect India and the North East region", said the former Lok sabha MP from Arunchal Pradesh.
"Congress is a communal cartel. They indulge in divisive politics and then call Narendra Modi (BJP prime ministerial candidate) communal", Rijiju alleged.
"India needs a strong decisive leader and Modi is emerging as a strong leader. We are getting support for him from many quarters", he said.
About the party's meeting here, the BJP leader said a common strategy would be worked out as a vision document for India ensuring the party wins maximum of the 24 Lok Sabha seats from the N-E region.
