My fight not against Gogoi, but against poverty and corruption, says PM Modi in Assam

Guwahati: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday began the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) campaign in Assam by addressing his first rally in Tinsukia.

 

Addressing people, Modi said that his fight is not against CM Tarun Gogoi, but against poverty and corruption.

“You gave 60 years to Congress expecting good things, I ask nothing but 5 years from you. But this is surely going to benefit Assam,” he said.

Modi also said that Assam election is a personal loss for him as he has to send one of the most capable ministers Sarbanand Sonowal for campaigning.

The Election Commission has announced two-phase voting for the 14th Assam assembly elections on April 4 and 11. The votes will be counted on May 19.

Assam election a personal loss for me because I have to send one of the most capable ministers Sarbanand Sonowal for campaigning, says Modi.

You gave 60 years to Congress expecting good things. I ask nothing but 5 years from you. This is surely going to benefit Assam.

There is one wave in Assam, one Anand in Assam and that is ‘Sarbanand’.

My fight is not against CM Tarun Gogoi ji, my fight is against poverty and corruption.

Assam was one of the most prosperous states at the time of Independence. Today, it is one of the poorest states.

There are many villages in Assam which don’t even have electric poles.

Situation in Assam will change if three things are done – education to poorest, income to youths and medicines to old.

When I was a tea-seller, it was Assam tea I sold which refreshed people, I owe a debt to Assam for that.
