“In his tweet, he wrote ‘Gujarat to West Bengal’ and didn’t mention the Northeast states. He does not consider the region to be a part of India,” said Assam BJP Mahila Morcha President Angoorlata Deka. 

Meanwhile, the Assam unit of the National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) has slammed Angoorlata Deka after she lodged the complaint. 

“Angoorlata Deka, just because ‘angoor khattey hein’ and you lost elections comprehensively, doesn’t mean people have to take you seriously. First read the national anthem Jana Gana Mana word by word properly. And then see that Rahul Gandhi was quoting Rabindranath Tagore,” the Assam NSUI tweeted.

Following his tweet, chief ministers of Assam, Manipur and Tripura pointed out that Rahul Gandhi had left out the Northeast states.
