PM Modi sounds poll bungle in Assam, blames Congress for state's woes
Guwahati: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday blamed the Congress for the problems of Assam, saying that the party hasn't done any work in 15 years despite the fact that his predecessor 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 a rally here.
“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.
He is expected to address about 6,000 students and others at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Guwahati. The assembly elections are due in the state by April.
