KOKRAJHAR: Attacking the 15-year Congress rule in Assam and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who represents the state in Rajya Sabha, over “lack of development”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched BJP’s election campaign here by announcing a slew of initiatives, including tribal status to two communities.

Addressing a rally, organised jointly by BJP and its new ally Bodoland People’s Front for the upcoming Assam Assembly polls, he said BJP will ensure all-round development of Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) areas which have been “betrayed” by Congress.

“Why does Assam have so many problems when the same government is there for 15 years and the state has sent a Prime Minister for ten years….They could not do anything in 15 years and now they want me to solve all their problems within 15 months…. Don’t you think its unfair to me,” Modi said.

“There is a long list of problems. There has been no development,” he said addressing the rally at Bodofanagar here.

The Prime Minister came down heavily on the Congress government in Assam and the previous UPA government at the Centre for “failing” to fulfil dreams and aspiration of the people.

“They are asking questions about my government. But what have you done in last 15 years in Assam and 10 years in the Centre when a person representing Assam was the Prime Minister,” he said, reffring to Singh.(Agencies)
