JORHAT, March 29 - The BJP has lambasted the Congress party for resorting to spreading misinformation among the tea workers against the saffron party of denying ticket to the incumbent Jorhat MP Kamakhya Prasad Tasa for the Jorhat Parliamentary seat.

Addressing mediapersons at the Jorhat Press Club this afternoon, BJP State unit spokesman Hemanta Kalita, charged the Congress party with spreading false information among the tea garden workers� community against BJP by stating that Tasa has been denied a ticket this time to contest the polls.

It may be mentioned here that Tasa is from the tea tribes community and has been a leader of the Assam Tea Tribes Students� Association.

The BJP has this time fielded Assam Minister of State (Independent charge) Topon Kumar Gogoi, also a former AASU leader, for the Jorhat Lok Sabha constituency.

Kalita, while clarifying, stated that Tasa himself had expressed his wish not to contest the polls this time.

Stating that he (Tasa) might have �some other plans� regarding his political career and hence did not seek to be a party candidate from the Jorhat Lok Sabha seat, Kalita said the Congress was trying to exploit the sentiment among the tea workers by trying to project that BJP was ignoring tea tribes.

Kalita also refuted the charge levelled by the Mariani Congress party MLA Rupjyoti Kurmi that the BJP workers were involved in the attempt to distribute bicyclyes among students at Nakachari area under Deberapar Police Outpost bordering Nagaland within the Mariani Assembly constituency last evening.

He denied BJP workers' involvement in the alleged recovery of bicycles from a mini-truck and also refuted Kurmi�s charge of bicycles were meant to be distributed among voters. Meanwhile, a district administration official said that investigation into the incident was on.
