Guwahati, Apr 22(UNI) The Minority Legal Right Protection Committee (MLRPC), Assam today blamed both Congress and the Assam United Democratic Front(AUDF) for using the minorities as 'vote bank'.
Addressing a press conference here, MLPRC Working President Ali Akbar Miyan, a former MLA, said if the Congress was giving 'false' promise of minority development, the AUDF has 'completely failed' to address the problems of the minorities.
