By Hemanta Kumar Nath, Guwahati, February 8 : : Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Saturday attacked the Congress and said the ruling party is using India as its 'private property'.
"India is not the personal property of the Congress. Who did the Congress ask before deciding to give away your land," Modi said while addressing a rally here.
Attacking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Modi said he has represented the Rajya Sabha from Assam for 23 years but could not do anything for the region.
"He is the MP of Rajya Sabha from Assam. Assam has been choosing him for the past 23 years and Assam has invested a huge investment. But he could not do anything for the region in past two decades. If PM can't do anything for his constituency then what will he do for the country," Modi said.
"The Congress has been making empty promises but time has changed and people of India will change it," Modi said.
Speaking on Assam, Modi said, "The law and order situation the state is very difficult but the state government is not worried about it."
Modi also attended a mass rally in Imphal in Manipur on Saturday.
A powerful blast had rocked Manipur before his rally.
According to reports, an Assam Rifles personnel was killed in the blast.
