GUWAHATI, June 21 � The stalemate in the State�s political circuit over the demand for change in leadership continues with Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi expressing ignorance about the mood the Congress high command is in.
�I am not aware of my position. How can I comment on others,� Gogoi commented during a press conference when asked to comment on media reports speculating a change in leadership in states like Maharashtra.
�I am going to New Delhi tomorrow to attend a meeting on the post-poll review of the party�s performance,� he said.
Gogoi, while addressing mediapersons, flayed the Modi Government for hiking passenger fares and freight rates, which are detrimental to the cause of the common man at large. �Where is the Acche Din?� he asked. Gogoi said he had asked the Deputy Commissioners to look into the aspects relating to price rise and take necessary measures.
On the controversy surrounding issuance of visa-less entry to Bangladeshi nationals, Gogoi stuck to his earlier comment, stating that the Ministry of External Affairs has sought the State Government�s opinion and recorded it as well.
Meanwhile, in view of the government�s move against insurgent activities, the Chief Minister said that it was important as it would ensure development of roads in forest areas. �We are pursuing the case,� he added.
