Gogoi slams Gadkari on development comment

Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Monday slammed Nitin Gadkari a day after the BJP president blamed Congress government for backwardness. Talking to reporters in Dispur he said that BJP has been keeping the state deprived of its due privileges for yeas. He said only the Congress government has been giving peace a chance to prevail in Assam.


Criticising the BJP leader's comments on Hindu refugees, Gogoi said he was shedding crocodile tears and that the party was not interested in solving the age old infiltration problem through Bangladesh.
