Under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ got good response among the people.”
Criticising BJP, Borah said, “The BJP have failed in their ‘Vision Document’. They have promised to hike wages of tea garden workers and promised to provide ST status to the six ethnic groups of Assam and told to solve the flood problem etc., but till date they have failed in their promises made in the ‘Vision Document’. The BJP is a party of fake promises. Now, the people have understand everything and showing support to us.”
