Addressing a campaign rally in support of Bijoy Krishna Handique, candidate from the Jorhat constituency, Dr Singh said, “The Congress Government has strengthened the country’s economy. Through we had achieved success in many sectors; there are other areas here to focus on.”
Appealing to the people to vote for the Congress, Dr Singh said, “We have done good works for the country’s development. But the other governments had contributed nothing. That is why we were re-elected in 2009.”
