Guwahati, Feb 18: Barely two days after BJP scripted history in Assam's municipal polls, party's national executive member Prodyut Bora has decided to quit from the party.

BJP leader quits party, blames Modi-Shah
Bora has cited party chief Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'arrogance' as the reason for his resignation from the party.

As per a report published in The Indian Express, Bora was quoted as saying, "I am mortified to see that no Cabinet Minister, no National Office Bearer, no Member of Parliament has demonstrated the courage to question Modi-ji on the subversion of this fine democratic tradition."

Bora has also questioned PM Modi's promise to stop Bangladeshi infiltration in the state and relief to the victims of Assam floods.

Bora is said to be unhappy after reports came that BJP has, reportedly, decided to induct former Assam minister and Congress leader Hemanta Biswa Sarma, into partyfold.

Bora has reportedly alleged that Sarma was once associated with ULFA.

Earlier in the day, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi attacked the Modi Government at Centre for not doing anything for Assam.

"We had submitted the memorandum in October last year. The inter-ministerial team visited the flood-hit areas only this month. Where will they get flood now? The Centre is not at all serious about the problem in Assam," Gogoi said.

In October 2014, Assam had sought Rs 9,370 crore assistance from the Centre to mitigate problems created by floods, rebuild damaged infrastructure, rehabilitate victims and strengthen embankments.

"All flood management works that are being done now, we got the funds during UPA tenure," Gogoi claimed. He said the Centre was not releasing money under various departments despite giving utilisation certificates.
