“BJP had promised a lot of things in the election manifesto. This time we will bring the Cow Protection Bill and next we will bring the population bill to Assam. Apart from these, we will also bring a bill, but we don’t want to use the Love Jihad word. A Hindu man should not be cheated a Hindu girl also. It is not that, it will be called Love Jihad when a Muslim man cheats a Hindu girl, if a Hindu man will cheat a Hindu girl, he will also be punished. We will work against cheating. The new law will not only against Muslims but it will also against Hindu. My daughter, sister who belong to any religion, must not be cheated by anyone,” Himanta Biswa Sarma said.
