Amid reports from New Delhi that the NDA government was keen to exclude Assam from implementation of the Land Boundary Agreement between India and Bangladesh, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi Saturday requested PM Narendra Modi not to take such a decision.
Gogoi, in a letter to the PM, expressed surprise at the reported decision not to include clauses relating to the Assam sector in the protocol ratified by Parliament without any consultation with the state. Gogoi had accompanied the then PM Manmohan Singh to Dhaka when the two countries signed the protocol on September 6, 2011.
