Congress leader and former party president Rahul Gandhi visited the Kamakhya Temple in Guwahati on Wednesday morning. Gandhi was accompanied by Assam State Congress chief Ripun Bora and other party leaders.

Speaking to mediapersons later, Rahul said, “Unlike the BJP, Congress party keeps the promises made to the people during the elections.”

He said that in Punjab, Chhattisgarh and Karnataka his party had promised to waive farm loans and did it after coming in power.

“Sh.@RahulGandhi visited the Kamakhya Temple, one among the 51 Shakti Peethas, seeking blessings for peace & progress in Assam & the welfare of each & every person through #Congressor5Guarantee,” Gaurav Gogoi tweeted.

“असम, सम्मान व प्रगति के लिए इस संघर्ष में हम आपके साथ हैं।
(Translated from Hindi)
We are with you in this struggle for Assam, respect and progress,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

The second phase elections to 39 constituencies will be held on Thursday, and 40 seats in the final phase on April 6.

It is to be mentioned that an estimated 79.97 per cent of the total 81.09 lakh voters had exercised their franchise in 47 assembly constituencies during the first phase of polling in Assam on March 27.
