 Congress, BJP in slanging match in Assam

Guwahati: Congress president Sonia Gandhi Friday lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), saying the party that is now raising the bogey of Bangladeshi infiltration in Assam did nothing to check the influx during its regime.

"The BJP was in power at the centre and during their regime they did literally nothing to check infiltration from Bangladesh and now during the elections here, the same party is shouting from rooftops about the danger from Bangladeshis," Gandhi told an election rally in Guwahati, Assam's major city.

"It is the Congress government both in Assam and at the centre that is taking steps to check influx."

Gandhi addressed another election rally in the western town of Dhubri and urged the people of Assam to give the Congress a third chance to rule the state.

"The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and the BJP have been carrying out a slanderous campaign in Assam, but let me tell you they did nothing for the people of Assam and only made false promises," Gandhi said in Dhubri.

"What did the BJP-led government at the centre do in Assam and during that time the AGP was in power in the state. I challenge both the AGP and the BJP to clarify what they did for Assam during their regime."

Gandhi's fiery speech was hailed with thunderous applause in both the rallies.

"I am appealing for votes on the basis of the good governance and overall development in Assam during the last 10 years of Congress government," the Congress president said.

"And I am more than confident that the Congress would make a political hat-trick in Assam."
