Assam Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi has said that if the Congress party comes to power in the state, it will restore the name of former PM Rajiv Gandhi in Orang National Park.

“When the next Congress Government is formed in the state of Assam, on the first day we will cancel the decision of the BJP government to remove the name of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi from the Orang National Park,” Assam Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi said.

“Indian culture teaches us to respect martyrs unlike RSS,” he added.

Gaurav Gogoi’s reaction came soon after the Assam government removed the name of Rajiv Gandhi (former Prime Minister) from Assam’s Orang National Park.

“Rajiv Gandhi Orang National Park to be renamed as Orang National Park, taking cognizance of the demands of Adivasi and tea tribe communities,” Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma tweeted while sharing the decisions of the Assam Cabinet.
