New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday accused the Congress of supporting those trying to destroy India’s image associated with tea.
“India’s oldest party, who ruled over India for 50-55 years, is supporting people who are trying to remove India’s image associated with tea. Can we forgive the Congress for this? Don’t they deserve to get punished?” PM Modi said while addressing a rally in Assam’s Chabua.
PM Modi alleged that a toolkit has been circulated that will defame the tea of Assam and yoga.
“It has prepared a plan and the makes of this toolkit want to inflict losses on our tea plantations. The Congress party supports these toolkit makers and still has the audacity to ask for votes in Assam. Can we forgive such a party?” he said.
Asserting that the Congress has gone far from the people of Assam, PM Modi said,” A few days ago, they shared a photo from Sri Lanka and said it was Assam. A few days ago, they shared a photo from Taiwan and said it was Assam. It is injustice and insult to our beautiful Assam.”

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will be in Assam on Saturday.
PM Modi further said that the Congress has joined hands with parties that are a danger to Assam’s culture and heritage.
“Development of every region of Assam is a priority for the BJP government. We are committed to ensure that the culture and heritage of the state remains protected,” he added.
