War of words: Gogoi vs Sonowal

Union minister Sarbananda Sonowal took on chief minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday a day after the latter thrashed state BJP MPs alleging lack of voice in New Delhi.

Talking to reporters at the sidelines of a function in Sonapur in the outskirt of Guwahati city, the former state BJP president said that the BJP MPs have been discharging their duties and responsibilities in parliament. “Gogoi should concentrate on his own duties. It would be better for the chief minister to concentrate on the development of the state than blaming it all on BJP,” said Sonowal.

According to the Union minister, Gogoi has no option to cover up his failure but to blame to BJP for all issues of the state.

Notably, Gogoi on Tuesday dared BJP MPs from Assam to raise their voices in Delhi on the issues confronting the state. He said he has not seen such MPs who lack courage to fight for the state
