Moran (Assam), Feb. 5 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday launched a veiled attack on the Gandhi family, accusing them of not allowing the government to function in an effective manner.
“There is one family, which is not letting us take decisions,” Prime Minister said in his address here.
He also urged the electorate to vote for the BJP and make Sports Minister Sarbanand Sonowal the state’s Chief Minister in the upcoming assembly polls.
“Assam needs a government, which listens to the poor. It needs a government that is receptive to the problems of the labourers,” he said.
He said Assam is greatly known for its tea and accused the Congress Government of neglecting the state’s tea workers. He slammed the Congress for not implementing the existing laws for their security.
The Prime Minister said that the initiatives of the Central Government, including MUDRA and Start-up India, were aimed at creating fresh opportunities for the youth. He said employment opportunities have to be created not just in big cities but even in smaller towns.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Modi inaugurated the Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Limited (BCPL), a petrochemical complex, at Lepetkata near Dibrugarh and the wax plant of Numaligarh Refineries Limited.
The Prime Minister is presently on a three-day visit to the states of Assam, Andhra Pradesh and Odisha beginning today. (ANI)
