    1. Sonia Gandhi: "Can anybody forget that how Modi government had refused to provide funds for relief during floods in Assam? Can you forget that Modi government has reduced the funding of schemes made for the uplift of Assam during the UPA government? Can you forget how Modi government snatched the special state status of Assam, which was given by the UPA government during the Prime Ministership of Manmohan Singh. (Reuters)

    2. Sonia Gandhi: "We had given a very good system of autonomous council for Assam's development. What has Modi government done? What are they doing? Modi government is making all efforts to finish the autonomy of this council. Prime Minister Modi did not think of talking to Assam or other states of North East on the Naga accord. Now nobody knows what happened to this accord." (PTI)

    3. Sonia Gandhi: "Prime Minister Modi praises Assam tea but those working in the tea garden are passing through tough times during his rule. Those working in the tea gardens and the tribals are asking Modi ji when will our good days come. Modi government is trying to snatch the right of cheap foodgrains available to the tea garden workers." (Reuters)

    4. Sonia Gandhi: "I would ask the Prime Minister why did he reduce the budget for minorities and tribals. What is happening ever since Modi-led NDA government has come to power. Price rise is breaking the back of people. The prices of even essential medicines have gone beyond the reach of common man." (PTI)

    5. Sonia Gandhi: "This time the composite culture of Assam is in danger because two dangers have come together here. One is communal and the other is divisive. Why do they oppose the Congress party and its workers? Because they know it well that Congress represents all sections of the Assamese society. They know that in 15 years of Gogoi's rule, Assam has emerged as a peaceful and progressive state." (PTI)

    6. Sonia Gandhi: "When they had ruled the state, it was known for anarchy and extremism. If such people came to power, the era of peace and development which continued for last 15 years will come under threat." (BJP's ally was in power in Assam twice in the past.) After all, why brothers and sisters of North East and Assam are being insulted so much? Why Tarun Gogoi is being insulted this much? Why people of Assam are being insulted so much.? (PTI)
