NEW DELHI, Aug 27 � Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) has for the first time has commented on the differences between Chief Minister, Tarun Gogoi and a Cabinet colleague, blaming the infighting within the ruling Congress Party for the recent incidents of violence that led to the killing of 90 persons.

Addressing a press conference at the Press Club of India here on Monday, AGP president, Prafulla Kumar Mahanta said that infighting in the Congress over the post of Chief Minister has cost the people of the State dearly.

It all started with a minister of Tarun Gogoi Government aspiring to replace him by causing trouble for him using his media connections and links with former Bodo militants in the Bodo areas.

Obviously referring to Himanta Biswa Sarma�s resignation drama, Mahanta without taking any names said that the concerned Minister had submitted his resignation, apprehending his ouster from the Ministry and left the State, even as Cabinet colleagues were trying to help the Chief Minister in solving the problems of the clashes between the Bodos and Muslim community living in the BTAD areas, the AGP president said, giving a brief account of the developments during those crucial eight days.

Can the Prime Minister answer why such irresponsible behaviour of his Party men has been tolerated.

It is ironic that the Chief Minister is now deputing the same minister to oversee the disturbed areas thus further compounding the problem and Saturday�s killing are a clear result of that.

Attacking both the Centre and State Government, Mahanta said that it has been proved time and again that none of the governments have made illegal migration from Bangladesh as an issue and taken it up with the neighbouring government. It is high time that Union Government took initiatives and strong measures to end the continued violence and also implement the Assam Accord.
