Congress admits failure to play CAB card

Guwahati: Finally state Congress has admitted the party's failure to make the Citizenship Bill in the Lok Sabha poll with full forces. 

This was what former CM Tarun Gogoi said as he was addressing a press conference in Guwahati on Thursday. 

Gogoi said they tried their best but it failed to reach the people in the grassroots level.  

"We tried.  But we could not concentrate only on it since many issues were on the store," said the former chief minister. 

He further said that the pressure groups who organized the state wide protest could not help the issue reach the rural areas.
