Assam elections will be showdown against Modi; BJP will be crushed, says Tarun Gogoi

Guwahati: As the Mughals were crushed in the battle of Saraighat, the BJP will be vanquished in the forthcoming assembly elections in Assam, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said on Monday.

Gogoi said the elections will be a showdown between him and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and the NDA government's failure on all fronts and its anti-people and anti-poor policies will be his main poll planks.

"The BJP-led government at the Centre has made a U-turn on all issues concerning the people and it has utterly failed in fulfilling the poll promises made to the people," he said.

"The frequent visit of central ministers to Assam has been primarily aimed at covering the failure of the central government and it has indulged in show business and fake assurances," Gogoi said.

"The visits of the central ministers are aimed at hoodwinking the people and diverting their attention from the failure of the central government," he said.

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat also visited Assam twice recently, primarily to polarise the otherwise peaceful ambience of Assam, he said.

"The RSS is trying tacitly to sow the seeds of discord in Assamese society which was moulded and shaped by the philosophy of Srimanta Sankardeva and Ajan Fakir. We are committed to build a modern Assam based on the edifice laid by these saints," he said, adding that the state government will foil any such activity.
