Recently, during his whirlwind tour of Assam, PM Modi said that the state has become “diseased” under Congress rule and asked voters to uproot the party in the upcoming elections.
Gogoi countered Modi saying that the prime minister is deflecting attention to cover up his “failures” from the last two years.
