Rahul Gandhi on day-long visit to BTAD and Dhubri
Guwahati: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi Tuesday met victims of ethnic violence in relief camps and held discussions with Bodoland Territorial Council leaders on the prevailing situation in Assam.
Gandhi, who arrived in Kokrajhar on a day-long visit to violence affected Bodoland Territorial Administered District (BTAD) and Dhubri, visited Kathalguri and Gambaribeel Relief camps.
He would later go to Salakati in Kokrajhar besides two relief camps in Dhubri district.
Gandhi met the relief camp inmates and also held discussions with Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) leaders and representatives of other civil organisations in the district regarding the prevailing situation along with relief and rehabilitation being provided to the affected people.
He was accompanied by Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and Assam Pradesh Congress Committee President Bhubaneswar Kalita.
"AICC is very concerned about the situation as the affected areas are yet to return to total normalcy even after nearly two months of the violence which rocked Kokrajhar, Chirang and Dhubri districts in July," a senior Congress leader said here.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde had earlier visited the affected areas.
