Numaligarh: Addressing a public rally Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal came down heavily on both the Congress and the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) and said that both the parties are the two sides of a same coin.

Addressing the rally as part of his election campaign ahead of the Lok Sabha polls in Numaligarh on Tuesday, Sonowal said, “I’ve said this earlier also that the Congress and AIUDF are the two sides of the same coin. This has now come to light.”

During the election rally, Sonowal was accompanied by AGP leader and minister Atul Bora and MLA Angurlata Deka.

“Former Assam CM Tarun Gogoi once questioned the existence of AIUDF chief Badruddin Ajmal. Yet, he has aligned with the AIUDF. The Congress and AIUDF are now alliance partners,” Sonowal criticized the Congress party.

“AIUDF supports illegal influx of Bangladeshi migrants. Congress’ tie-up with this party reveals their true colours. I urge the voters to bring PM Narendra Modi to power again. The Congress’ Kaliabor MLA has failed so far in bringing development in the constituency,” he added.
