The Assam Congress on Tuesday demanded the BJP to ask for apology from the people of the State for failing to fulfil its promises made during the last Assembly elections.

“The BJP should seek apology from the people of Assam for failing to fulfil the promises it made during the last Assembly elections in the State,” said Assam Congress leader Gaurav Vallabh.

“They (BJP) should have attached an apology letter with the manifesto they released today,” added Gaurav Vallabh.

Briefing the media about the Congress’ 5 ‘guarantees’, Congress leader and Maharashtra Minister Ashok Chavan said: “The Congress has given guarantees, not jumlas.”
