GUWAHATI: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not raising serious issues like infiltration, repatriation, smuggling and illegal trade with his Bangladeshi counterpart during his 2-day visit to that country.
Gogoi said Modi's visit to the neighbouring nation exposed his lack of seriousness in tackling the important issues along the Indo-Bangladesh border as he did not raise them with his Bangladeshi counterpart, an official release said.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his Lok Sabha election campaign made promises on these issues and people of Assam supported him by sending seven BJP MPs from the state," Gogoi said.
"...but the Prime Minister is not at all serious in dealing with the problems. He made such promises only to garner votes and was never serious in implementing his poll promises," the CM added.
