PM Modi turns down the invitation of the ‘Khelo India Youth Games’ in Assam

Pm Modi is unlikely to inaugurate the third ‘Khelo India Youth Games 2020’ here on 10 January. The BJP’s Assam unit has not received any information regarding his program so far.

BJP state unit spokesperson Rupam Goswami said on Wednesday that an invitation was sent to the Prime Minister’s Office to invite Modi to inaugurate the ‘Khelo India Youth Games.’

He asked if Modi canceled his visit to Assam, To which Goswami said, “There was no such conversation that the Prime Minister is coming to Guwahati to inaugurate Khelo India.”Sending the invitation to the Prime Minister is a formality. We have not received any information regarding our request from the Prime Minister’s Office.”

There have been considerable protests in Assam against the controversial Revised Citizenship Act (CAA). Various organizations said that if the Prime Minister comes to the inauguration ceremony, he will intensify his performance.

There was speculation in media whether Modi would come to inaugurate the Youth Games in Guwahati and whether he had canceled his visit due to demonstrations against the CAA.
