Modi takes a dig at Congress; blames them for Assam issues.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi blamed the Congress party for the issues and problems in Assam. Addressing a rally on Tuesday, Modi asserted that the party has not done any work in 15 years despite the fact that his predecessors Manmohan Singh represented the state in the Rajya Sabha.
“They (Congress) didn’t work for 15 years and expect me to do all the work in 15 months,” Modi said while addressing.
“I thought there can’t be any problem in Assam as a party (Congress) was in power here for 15 years, since the former Prime Minister (Manmohan Singh) from here governed the nation for 10 years (2004-2014),” he said.
Later today, Modi is expected to address around 6000 students and others at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Guwahati. This comes at close quarters with the assembly elections due in the state by April.
