Assam: Sonowal, Himanta attack Rahul Gandhi for ‘wake up’ tweet
Failing to digest the defeat in the recent Assembly polls in four States including Mizoram, the Assam BJP leaders are now up in arms against the Congress leaders, particularly against Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
Replying to the tweet of Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowalhas accused Rahul Gandhi of trying to take credits for issues related to livelihood & development of farmers of Assam.
Replying to Rahul Gandhi’s tweet, Assam Chief Minister Sonowal tweeted: “Mr Gandhi, this attempt to take credit on an issue that is related to the livelihood & development of farmers is quite frivolous. You have no moral right to talk about Assam or its farmers. Everyone knows how your successive Govts in Assam looted the resources meant for farmers.”
Rahul Gandhi had earlier tweeted, “The Congress party has managed to wake the CM’s (sic) of Assam & Gujarat from their deep slumber. PM is still asleep. We will wake him up too.”
Rahul Gandhi’s tweet followed as Assam Government after a Cabinet meeting decided to waive farm loans and announced incentives for the 27 lakh farming families in Assam, a day after Rahul Gandhi announced to waive farm loans countrywide if the Congress comes to power in 2019.
