Congress hoardings ridiculing PM Modi come up in Assam

The ruling Congress party in Assam has launched a campaign asking questions intended to embarrass Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Hoardings ridiculing Prime Minister Modi were put up across the state.

“Aahise sapunor sadagor gagan fola bhashonere pratisruti diboloi… tenga aam punor besiboloi?” taunts one of the posters bearing a caricature of Modi.

These Assamese phrases translate into: “The dream merchant is coming to pierce the sky with lofty promises… will he sell you sour mangoes again?”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was kicking off the BJP’s poll campaign in Assam on Tuesday, hoping to cash in on a new-found political alliance in the Northeastern state the party is hoping to wrest from Congress.

Election for Assam’s 126-member assembly is scheduled in April-May along with four other states and the BJP is making a serious effort to grab power from the Congress which has ruled the state for 15 consecutive years.
