Gogoi arriving in city today

By Spl Correspondent

NEW DELHI, March 24 � Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi is leaving for Guwahati on Friday, after undergoing a minor surgery on Monday to replace the faulty generator of his pace-maker.

Gogoi, who was released from Indraprastha Apollo Hospital yesterday afternoon, spent the day today resting at his Teenmurty Lane residence. He had very few visitors and also did not speak to the waiting media.

The Chief Minister has been advised rest and told to avoid hectic election campaigning schedule. Gogoi, however, is in touch with senior AICC leaders including general secretary Digvijay Singh and coordinating the Party�s election campaign.

With the Congress finishing its complicated nomination exercise, the focus is now going to shift to checkmating rebel candidates. For the first phase of the election, at least nine-10 rebel candidates of the ruling Party have filed nominations.

Meanwhile, an interesting situation is developing over nomination for Kokrajhar (West) seat. The ruling Congress is all set to nominate Parameswar Brahma of BPF for the seat. The Congress Party was forced to review the candidature of Reena Brahma allegedly following complaints from various tribal groups.

Congress sources said that Parameswar Brahma, who was the Parliamentary Secretary of BPF, was denied ticket this time and has now switched sides to join Congress. Backed by Congress president Bhubaneswar Kalita, Brahma�s nomination has not gone down well with the Chief Minister�s group and its ally BPF.

Till the time of filing this report, AICC had not announced his nomination and was reportedly discussing the issue with the Chief Minister and Digvijay Singh.
