Gogoi condemns Cong MLA’s comment on Irani

Assam Chief Minster Tarun Gogoi on Monday said Congress MLA Nilamani Sendeka’s controversial comments on Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are condemnable and they are “not Assamese culture”.

“I condemn Nilamani Sen Deka’s comment. He has done wrong. I asked him to apologise. He has informed me that he has already apologised,” Gogoi told reporters here.

“When Himanta Biswa Sarma (former Congress leader now in BJP) was in our party and made such comments, I had reprimanded him too. Whether it is done by their party (BJP) or our party (Congress), it is not good. This is not Assamese culture,” he added.

Sendeka had made the comment at a public meeting at Nalbari on Sunday. “The MLA’s statement is his personal view and Congress is in no way connected with it. The statement is condemnable, indecent, low grade and APCC does not take responsibility for it,” its chief spokesman Ripun Bora said on Sunday.
