Also released photos
Sarma claimed this in a post on social media. Along with this, he also released four photos. A crowd can be seen in these. According to Sarma, after the results in Bengal, life-threatening attacks on BJP workers and their families are being carried out. Because of this fear, these people are leaving Bengal and coming to Assam. They are being given lodging and food in Dhubri district of here.

Shortly before this, BJP national president JP Nadda arrived in Kolkata on Tuesday. They will stay in West Bengal for two days to review the areas of violence.
After reaching Kolkata, Nadda said that the events that have been seen and heard after the results of the election of West Bengal are surprising and worrying. I had heard such incidents at the time of Partition of India, but we have not seen so much intolerance after the election results in independent India.
