Cong trying to divert public opinion: AGP

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, July 19 � Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) today asserted that Tarun Gogoi is haunted by the fear of losing power. This is becoming gradually evident with the illogical statements he is making nowadays in his desperate bids to castigate the Opposition for the ills facing the State, said the Opposition party.

AGP chief spokesman Atul Bora told this newspaper that besides Chief Minister Gogoi, his party has also become desperate to divert public opinion from the issue of Rs 1,000- crore NC Hills (Dima Hasao) Autonomous Council scam.

To counter the popular awareness already generated on the issue, the party has also gone on to organise the so-called Jana Jagaran Yatras with the twin aims of silencing the Opposition and also to confuse the people with concocted information, Bora said.

But Tarun Gogoi and his cohorts should realize the fact that even all the perfumes of Arabia would not be able to sweeten their foul-smelling hands that misappropriated thousands of crores of public money.

Whenever the Opposition raises the issue of NC Hills scam, Tarun Gogoi and his cohorts start clamouring the same old slogan of the veterinary LoC scam to shout down the voice of the Opposition. But this trick has lost its magical power today.

Gogoi is also trying to project the AGP as a bunch of cheats. But in doing so he has, to his disadvantage, become oblivious of the fact that the Congress party itself is belived the �dismemberment of Assam into seven States�. Its first premier Late Jawaharlal Nehru virtually handed over Assam to the Chinese. And Congress is at the root of all the problems the NE region is facing today, Bora asserted.

Gogoi and his party should tell the people as to what made them nominate Abu Syed Khan, the brother of NC Hills scam-tainted RH Khan, as its candidate from Mankachar Legislative Assembly Constituency in the 2001 Assembly elections, Bora said.

Gogoi and his party have been trying to project the arrest of RH Khan as one of their major achievements in the drive to check corruption in the NC Hills Autonomous Council. In fact this is nothing but a face-saving formula of the Congress party and its Chief Minister. The Congress-led Government had in reality elevated RH Khan to the status of an officer capable of liaising corruption in the hills district.

The Jana Jagaran Yatras are in no way going to save the Congress from the wrath of the people this time. The sooner the ruling party realizes it the better, said the AGP chief spokesman.
