Mention that any social organizations, including the opposition Congress party, have accused the BJP and the prime minister that it is a matter of great mystery that in view of the forthcoming Assam assembly elections to mislead the people, the government wants to seek votes from the public by lying for the same time.

Because Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced the completion of the bridge within 1 year to connect the chief minister constituency of Majuli Assam, the world’s largest river island, to the world.
