Ahead of the Modi’s visit, incumbent and former Assam chief ministers paid their visit to the poll-bound state on Wednesday.
Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, while campaigning at Jirania constituency for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Sushanta Choudhury, said, “Besides a witness of enormous growth and development enjoyed by BJP-ruled states across India, Assam is undergoing tremendous changes for good and overcoming various challenges faced during the Congress era.”
Sonowal further added that Tripura has vast prospects in tourism.
In a synchronization of events, former Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi lashed out at the BJP while speaking to reporters at Congress’s party headquarters at Post Office Chowmuhani.
He said, “The BJP government won’t last in the Northeast as it is befooling people with hollow promises.”
Gogoi sharply criticized the BJP by making allegations of its indulgence in political corruption. He stated that corporate houses are pumping funds for the BJP.
Apart from this, Gogoi also criticized the BJP for the draft NRC list in which a number of people belonging to the Bengali Hindu and religious minority community in Assam have found their names missing.
