“There is a Congress government in Assam. It is the Congress’ internal matter and we would not like to comment anything on it,” he told mediapersons at the BJP Headquarter here.

Taking "full responsibility" for the electoral loss in Assam, Gogoi earlier in the day announced that he would resign if Congress will get less than six seats.
    
"I take full responsibility. I have to take responsibility. If I get less than six, I will resign. This is a part of democracy but I was not expecting this result," Gogoi told reporters here.

Gogoi admitted that 'Modi factor' did influence the poll results in Assam.
    
Referring to BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate, Gogoi said, “Modi's misinformation campaign on Bangladeshis being settled in Kaziranga National Park did influence the electorate.”
    
“Modi's campaign was propaganda-oriented and his announcement that all Bangladeshis will be asked to leave the country was also a factor in the polls," he added.
    
Gogoi further said the BJP's performance could not be attributed to Modi's popularity but his propaganda.
