BJP Will Destroy Assam’s Peace and Prosperity: Rahul Gandhi


Rahul Gandhi today hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for launching personal attacks on him but not answering questions posed to him about the burning issues of the day.

The Congress Vice President also said that Modi made him listen to the quotes of his father Rajiv Gandhi and grand-mother Indira Gandhi instead of giving a response to his four questions in his speech in Lok Sabha yesterday.

I asked him four questions but he did not answer,” he said addressing a rally in Barak Valley in Silchar.

“Launch personal attacks at me as much you want and enjoy it but do answer my four questions. In my speech I had said nothing personal against Modi,” Rahul said, referring to his queries.

With Assam due to go to polls in two phases on April 4 and April 11, Gandhi also said people of the state will send BJP packing from the state like their Bihar counterparts due to his “non-stop false promises”.

With BJP putting together a coalition of several regional parties in its attempt to consolidate Hindu votes, Gandhi claimed that the opposition coalition will destroy the brotherhood and progress which the 15-year-old rule of Congress has ushered in Assam.
