Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday (March 27) exuded confidence of his Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) win over incumbent opposition Congress party in the upcoming elections in northeastern Assam state.

Modi has been holding election rallies across the state since Saturday for the upcoming two-phased polls starting April 04.

Addressing a public rally in Rangapara town, Modi slammed the ruling Congress and Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi for the poor condition of the state.

“There are strong winds of change in Assam which will uproot Congress and their 15 years of misrule will be over,” said Modi.

BJP, which is a minor player in the Assam political scenario, has stitched together an alliance with two regional parties, besides accommodating several dissident leaders from the incumbent Congress government.

Modi said he has three things on his agenda – development, speedy development and development in all directions.
