NEW DELHI, May 7 � Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi is likely to meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi and Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Tuesday.
Gogoi�s meeting with the Congress president assumes significance in the wake of reports of a possible reshuffle of the State Cabinet. Gogoi is said to be keen on reshuffling his team on the occasion of completion of one year of the third term of the State Government on May 18. The list of new PCC executive and office bearers is also pending clearance of the high command.
Meanwhile, Gogoi said the proposed National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC) should be based on mutual trust between the State and Centre.
Elaborating, the Chief Minister told this newspaper that though he had good working relations with the then NDA Government, there was an element of suspicion. �The then regime was suspicious that I was soft on ULFA and I apprehended that they wanted to deploy additional troops without consulting the State Government,� he said.
The Chief Minister said he has also suggested that NCTC official be held responsible for delay in investigation.
