Guwahati: A video of supporters purportedly shouting 'Pakistan zindabad'
at Silchar airport to welcome their party supremo and has created sensation in Assam. 

 
While the ruling BJP grabbed the opportunity to condemn the AIUDF, Congress reacted with 
more caution and the AIUDF rejected the allegation. 

The video at Silchar airport yesterday shows AIUDF supporters welcoming their chief Ajmal 
with flowers and raising slogans in his favour. 
 
The AIUDF has maintained that the slogan under scrutiny is 'Aziz Khan zindabad'. A leading fact-checking website, AltNews, has backed AIUDF's claim. 
   
The BJP has refused to accept it and it's top leaders, including influential Minister 
Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma and the party's national IT cell head Amit Malviya, have used 
social media to condemn the AIUDF. 
   
Congress leader Jitendra Singh, on the other hand, has maintained that no political party 
in the country will use 'Pakistan zindabad' slogan and urged the BJP-led state government 
to investigate the matter. 
   
The Congress is exploring alliance with the AIUDF for next year's election in Assam to oust 
BJP and its allies. (UNI)
