GUWAHATI, Jan 21 � The State Congress today lambasted the BJP-led NDA regime at the Centre for what it termed as a series of �U-turns� by the latter with regard to commitments made during last year�s Lok Sabha polls.

The APCC released a handbook, �BJP Government�s U-turn,� which will be distributed among all the 24,280 booth committees of the Congress party in Assam for dissemination among the people.

In the handbook, the APCC listed a number of alleged �U-turns� by the BJP Government on issues ranging from the India-Bangladesh land swap deal, big dams, illegal immigration, black money, inflation, price rise and so on.

Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi said, �The promise of acche din (good days) has vanished. They had opposed the land swap deal and called us traitors. Now they have come round to supporting it. If we were traitors, so are they.�

He said the Congress party�s position on Lower Subansiri and big dams was always clear. �However, they have two faces. They are not only engaged in U-turns, but have dual policies too. Now they are realising that our policies were good and so they have adopted them by rebranding them.�

Gogoi said the BJP had assured that illegal immigrants would be made to leave after the Lok Sabha polls. �Now they do not even raise the issue of illegal immigrants,� he said.

Gogoi castigated the Centre for halting recruitment to Central Government jobs and said unemployed youths from Assam would be among the losers as there are a lot of vacancies in Central jobs in the North-east.

�They are now talking of �Make in North East.� That is good. But how can industry come here when they have suspended incentives? They are only giving slogans. We sought incentives for the MSME sector. Now they have even cut the existing incentives,� said the Chief Minister.

He said while Gujarat has started receiving higher royalty on crude oil following a Supreme Court ruling, royalty in case of Assam has not yet been hiked.
