BJP demo in Assam to 'expose' Gogoi govt

Guwahati: The BJP on Saturday demonstrated across Assam to 'expose' the Tarun Gogoi-led Congress government for 'failing' to safeguard people's interests even after completion of 100 days in office for the third term".

The demonstrations here was led by BJP state unit president Ranjit Dutta, MLA, and by other leaders in the districts.

Talking to reporters, Dutta accused Tarun Gogoi of not being bothered about Assam and its people's interest.

"Instead of restarting the halted updating of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) to save the people of Assam from the grip of illegal Bangladeshis, Gogoi is busy engaging himself in ensuring their safety and security," Dutta alleged.

"Tarun Gogoi is going to Bangladesh with the Prime Minister this week. Why can't he force Bangladesh to take back their citizens illegally migrated to Assam?" he asked.

Though Gogoi had promised to provide a corruption free government before the polls, he allowed "tainted ministers, MLAs and officials" to continue in their earlier posts, the BJP leader alleged.

The BJP also charged the government with failing to uphold its promises to improve agriculture, industry, education, health and other vital sectors.
