Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi knows that his allegation regarding his predecessor not doing anything for Assam is not true.

“I don’t want to be decided by the Prime Minister but he knows what he is saying is not true,” Singh told reporters after casting his vote at Dispur Government High School here.

The former Prime Minister said that the people will “reward the Congress for the good work it has done for the people of the state for the last 15 years”.

Singh came alone, amidst tight security, after 1 PM to cast his vote though both he and his wife Gursharan Kaur are voters in Dispur constituency.

Singh, representing Assam in Rajya Sabha since 1991, is enrolled in the electoral roll as voter no. 570 while Gursharan Kaur is enrolled as voter no. 571.

The former Prime Minister was offered a Rajya Sabha ticket by late Congress Chief Minister Hiteswar Saikia when Singh became the Union Finance Minister in the Narasimha Rao government.

His address has been listed as a rented premise of Hiteswar Saikia and in the electoral roll it is mentioned as House no. 3989 in Sorumataria area of Guwahati.
