Jorhat, Apr 7: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Monday said there was no 'Modi magic' in the state and Congress would win more than ten seats.

"There is no Modi magic, but Tarun Gogoi magic in Assam. Earlier, I have said we'll win ten seats, but now I am sure Congress will get more than that," he told reporters after casting his vote here.

"The so-called Modi wave is the creation of private electronic media channels, but the Congress wave is there in the fields, plains and hills of Assam," Gogoi said.

The polling percentage in the current Lok Sabha polls in the state was expected to cross 75 per cent turnout in the 2011 state assembly elections, he said.

Referring to Kaliabor, where his son Gaurav Gogoi is contesting as a Congress candidate, the chief minister said the people of the constituency had a lot of love and affection for him and his family and they came out in large numbers since 6 AM to cast their votes.

"Gaurav will definitely win from Kaliabor and the polling percentage will be among the highest in the state," he said.

Gogoi was accompanied by his wife Dolly Gogoi to the polling booth, while his son also cast his vote earlier in the same booth. Former Union Minister and Jorhat MP Bijoy Krishna Handique, seeking a seventh consecutive term in Parliament, also cast his vote in the same polling booth.
