BJP state committee spokesperson Sarbananda Sonowal told that “The chief minister, who also holds the home portfolio, has failed in ensuring law and order in Assam.”
At the state BJP executive committee’s two-day meeting here, ex-Lok Sabha MP said that the Gogoi government had certained that women in Assam would get plenty protection.
Sonowal claimed that “But during 2006-2011, 11,553 women were kidnapped and 7,163 women raped in the state. As home minister of Assam, Tarun Gogoi totally failed to administrate the police force properly.”
He alleged that “Such a chief minister should resign from his post as he had failed in all fronts.”
The BJP has also claimed that work on the upgradation of the National Register of Citizens in Assam should be taken up instantly.
