“Not only Gogoi, none of the Congress leaders were rushed to Bihar to convey sympathy to the people,” he said in his scathing attack on the chief minister.

“Why do you remember those who have forget you,” said Modi adding that those in power should be removed in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.   

Accompanied by senior party leaders including Sarbananda Sonowal and Bijoya Chakrabartty, Modi arrived in Biswanath Challiaali from Itanagar at 12-15 to be greeted by a huge gathering at the Kamala Kanta play ground.
