Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge today launched a scathing attack on the BJP-led governments at the Centre and Assam, accusing that the party has betrayed the people of the state by promising them to make it ‘flood free’.

While expressing solidarity with those affected by the devastating floods, Kharge said that his party expects swift action from the government so as to alleviate the sufferings of the people.

In a post on X, Kharge wrote, “The flood situation in Assam is grim. Lakhs of people are affected in 15 districts and 36 people have lost their lives, till now. Congress party stands in solidarity with the people of Assam.

Our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims. We expect the Modi Govt and Assam Govt to provide prompt assistance, relief and compensation to the affected people.

People of the state have been squarely betrayed by the “double engine” Modi-Shah promise of making Assam — “a flood free state”.

In the past 10 years, on every issue, Modi Govt has only indulged in the politics of lies, deceit and treachery!

India suffers due to the BJP.”
