"Narendra Modi wants to rule Assam or Manipur or Arunachal Pradesh by remote control from Nagpur. PM Modi wants to impose only one line of thought by breaking the age-old tradition of peace, culture and history," he told a Congress rally here on the last day of his two-day visit to Assam.

Referring to PM Modi's handling of the northeast, he said he had one day rung up Congress president Sonia Gandhi and informed her that he had signed a "historic Nagaland accord" which the Congress could not in 40 years.

Sonia asked him (Rahul) to find out from chief ministers of Assam, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh about the accord but all of them said they had no knowledge of it, he said.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh too said he had no information when contacted, Rahul claimed. "Don't know what PM Modi was thinking and what he achieved by way of the Naga accord. There should be some weight and value in the prime minister's statement when he rings up a leader of the Opposition," he said.

PM Modi had announced the signing of an accord between the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-IM) and the Centre on August 3 last year.
