As Congress don’t want to loose any chance to perform in Assam assembly elections, Congress president and vice-president are addressing back-to-back rallies. A day after Sonia Gandhi aggressively campaigned for the party in the state, her son and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi too will on Thursday hold rallies.

The Congress vice president will address election rallies in Tinsukia, Dibrugarh and Tezpur.

Targeting PM Modi in her speech, Sonia had yesterday accused him of “insulting” people of the state and going back on promises of development.

The Congress president also took potshots at the Prime Minister for his remarks linking his humble origin as a tea seller with Assam tea and said “those working in the tea gardens as well as tribals are asking when will the good days (achche din) come.” ‘Achche din’ was Modi’s poll slogan in 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Repeatedly claiming “insult” of Assamese and North-East people by BJP, Gandhi said the composite culture of the state was in “danger” and if BJP-AGP-BPF alliance government came to power in the state, the “era of peace and development”, which she claimed was brought during the 15-year-rule of Tarun Gogoi in the state, would be under “threat”.

Talking at length about the contribution of Congress in bringing peace and prosperity in Assam, Gandhi said “this time the composite culture of Assam is in danger because two dangers have come together here. One is communal and the other is divisive.”
