Gogoi blasts Advani for land deal criticism

Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Friday strongly criticised L K Advani a day after the senior BJP leader slammed Congress government for corruption and mis-governance.

Addressing a press conference in Guwahati on Friday, Gogoi said it is only BJP which has institutionalized corruption. Gogoi said time and again BJP has been facing corruption charges in the country.

Gogoi also criticised Advani for opposing the land deal with Bangladesh saying that the senior BJP leader does not know how the deal would benefit the north eastern region.

He charged the erstwhile NDA government with not doing enough to Assam and its neighbouring north eastern states.
