Prime Minister Narendra Modi has visited Assam on Thursday to campaign for BJP by addressing public rallies at Mangaldoi and Silchar.
Reacting to Modi’s election rallies in the state, veteran Congress leader-cum-former Assam CM Tarun Gogoi has alleged that Modi’s visit to the state for campaigning on polling day is a violation of the model code of conduct (MCC).
“Modi could have campaigned tomorrow since no polling is scheduled for the day. Soliciting votes in the name of the martyrs of the Assam Agitation is also an indirect violation of the MCC. The martyrs are ours and not of the BJP,” the former chief minister added.
