He says BJP rakes up the illegal migration issue and Ram temple before each elections but does not want to solve them because of vote-bank politics.
"Actually, they (BJP) remember the infiltration issue always just before the election. In Assam, the issue is like what Ram Mandir is for them nationally. They will never solve it but will keep alive the issue for doing vote-bank politics," Gogoi  told a news agency in an interview.

In its bid to woo indigenous Assamese voters, BJP has given infiltration a major space in its campaign agenda during the ongoing Assembly polls and is attacking the Gogoi-led Congress government of encouraging illegal immigration from Bangladesh for getting votes of Bengali-speaking Muslims.
Questioning the role and motive of the saffron party, Gogoi accused the BJP-led NDA government of not doing anything to solve the problem despite being in the power twice.
