GUWAHATI: Assam congress president Ripun Bora lashes back at BJP National President JP Nadda for his remark on the opposition party as ‘political tourist’.
In a statement, Assam Pradesh Congress Committee President Ripun Bora also said that the party is not answerable to the BJP on what it is doing during the Covid situation.
“Nadda should remember that the BJP was born in 1980 while the Congress was born in 1885. How can a party that has been in existence for 136 years, that brought freedom for its people from British domination and that ruled India and contributed towards nation building be termed as ‘political tourist’ ?” Bora said.
Ripun Bora also added as congress party lost in Assam that doesn’t mean one can pass such comments for a party which is in existence for 136 years.
“Instead of discussing the Congress party in his virtual meetings with his party members, Nadda should ensure the safety of the people of Assam from Covid by facilitating quick availability of vaccines as the longer the delay, the greater is the threat to people’s lives”, Bora added.
