GUWAHATI, April 10 � The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) today served a show-cause notice on former Minister and chairman of the AMTRON Mohibul Haque for his controversial role in the April 9 protest march near Gauripur in Dhubri district, in connection with the mysterious death of 14 labourers of Assam origin at Latumbai in the neighbouring Meghalaya. Haque has been given two days� time to explain his position in this regard.
According to Ripun Bora, in-charge of the Media and IT Department of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC), as per media reports, the participants of the protest march shouted anti-India slogans. The protesters were waving the banner of the Dhubri Zila Unnayan Parishad. Mohibul Haque is the chief patron of this organisation.
Again, the protesters mouthed anti-India slogans in front of Haque, a member of the Congress party. This has made the Congress face a highly embarrassing situation. Moreover, Haque also used the official car of the AMTRON chairman, Bora said in a press release here. The show-cause on Haque has been served by the APCC in-charge of Administration and Organisation Dr Haren Das, following instruction from APCC president Anjan Dutta, asking the former Minister to explain within two days as to why appropriate disciplinary actions should not be taken against him for the reported offence he has committed, Bora said.
