The Congress on Sunday has demanded resignation of both the BJP governments in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.

“People have lost faith over the BJP government. This government can’t even save the lives of the people,” said All India Congress Committee (AICC) national spokesperson Pawan Khera.

He said that people are dying in Assam and unrest prevails in Arunachal Pradesh and the state governments are mute spectators.

The senior Congress leader said that this government is preaching many things but practicing nothing.

“Both Sarbananda Sonowal and Pema Khandu have lost moral responsibility to run the government,” said Khera.

More than 150 people have lost their lives in Assam following hooch tragedy. Arunachal Pradesh has been witnessing violence for last couple of days after the State Government decided to give Scheduled Tribe status to non-Arunachali ST community in two districts.

The Congress spokesperson also criticized the Narendra Modi government after it welcomed a ruling MP from the Pakistan government against the backdrop of Pulwama massacre where 49 security personnel have lost their lives in a suicide attack allegedly carried out by Pakistan backed JeM terrorist organisation.

Senior BJP leaders on Saturday also allegedly shook hands with the ruling MP from Pakistan government at Kumbh.
