GUWAHATI: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today claimed the victory of Congress in the Tiwa Autonomous Council election which proved that the popularity of Congress government was on the rise.

Thanking the people for voting for his party, the Chief Minister tweeted, "Victory of Congress in the Tiwa Autonomous Council election has proved that the popularity of Congress Govt is on the upswing."

"People have realised BJP's hollow promises and the Congress' victory in Tiwa Autonomous Council election is an indicator to this," Gogoi asserted.
