The Congress in Assam has launched yet another scathing attack on the ruling BJP in the State.

The Congress accused the BJP of destroying the social fabric of Assam.

“BJP has been working overtime to destroy the social fabric of Assam,” All India Congress Committee (AICC) spokesperson Gourav Vallabh said in Guwahati on Saturday.

“The saffron party during the past five years of its reign in Assam used communal divide as a tool to polarize the voters,” Gourav Vallabh alleged.

Stating that Assam is the land of Vaishnav saint Srimanta Sankardeva who propagated an inclusive society Gaurav Vallab claimed that the BJP has been boasting over the development efforts in Assam, but the reality is completely different.

The Congress came down heavily on the BJP-led Assam government saying that the “so-called double-engine” government” has “turned out to be double-CM government with both moving in opposite directions”.

The Congress also alleged: “Out of 36 states and UTs combined, Assam ranked 20th in the Business Reform Action Plan Results 2019 indicating no concrete reforms initiated by the Assam BJP government.”
