3 AICC leaders as observers for CLP election

By Spl Correspondent

NEW DELHI, May 26 - Three top AICC leaders are arriving in Guwahati tomorrow as observers for the election to the Congress Legislative Party leader, AICC sources said.

General secretaries Ambika Soni, Dr CP Joshi and secretary Avinash Pandey have been appointed as observers to the election of the Assam Congress�s CLP leader.

Party sources said that there are two frontrunners to the post � former State PWD Minister Ajanta Neog and Debabrata Saikia.

What is interesting is that former Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has been sidelined and he is no longer in the race for CLP leader, party sources said.

Gogoi had yesterday owed up moral responsibility for the rout of the Congress at the hustings in the State.

A section of the AICC leaders are upset with Gogoi for charting a wrong course and are particularly crossed over the former Chief Minister�s decision to go alone in the polls. These leaders feel that an alliance between Congress and AIUDF would have benefited the ruling clich�.

Meanwhile, Gogoi is yet to meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi to submit his report for the defeat of the party, sources said.
