GUWAHATI, Sept 28 - Senior BJP leader and legislator Atul Bora today submitted a memorandum to the Chief Justice of Gauhati High Court demanding initiation of contempt proceedings against former Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi for his remarks on �eviction�.
Bora, who was accompanied by his counsel Bijon Kumar Mahajan to the Chief Justice�s office, alleged that the former Chief Minister had made statements in regard to the Gauhati High Court�s order on eviction in and around Kaziranga National Park, which amounts to contempt of court.
In the memorandum, the BJP legislator alleged that Gogoi had said that �no action was taken against the encroachers in KNP during his tenure because he did not want to disturb the vote bank��.
�By openly defying the court order what kind of an example is the former Chief Minister trying to set?� Bora questioned. He also requested the Chief Justice to take appropriate contempt proceedings against Gogoi.
Later, Bora said that he is contemplating a contempt litigation against Gogoi for his comments.
