"Our party is committed to the welfare and development of the poor and the Congress government led by Tarun Gogoi was committed to 'Make in Assam' to provide employment to the youth of the state," Gandhi said at an election rally here. The first phase of polling was held today in the state.
    
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaks of 'Make in India' but for us the development of Assam and its youth are priority and we have been doing it for the last 15 years.
    
"If you recall the situation in 2001 before the Congress came to power, there was violence and killings all over the state. The Congress with its policy of love and compassion brought about a change to ensure development of the local people," he added.
