Gogoi to take oath as CM today

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 17 � Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi was unanimously re-elected as the leader of the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) in the CLP meeting held in the Assam Assembly premises today.

Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Bhubaneswar Kalita read out the resolution, while senior Congressman Bhumidhar Barman proposed Tarun Gogoi�s name as the CLP leader followed by few other senior leaders.

The proposal was unanimously accepted by the newly-elected members of the Assam Legislative Assembly, who raised their hands in approval of the proposal.

Immediately after his re-election, Gogoi appealed to all the newly-elected Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) to guard against complacency and work for the development of the common man.

Gogoi, while addressing the MLAs, said that the onus is now on the Congress party to live up to the expectations of the people of Assam, who have voted it to power for the third consecutive term.

�The focal areas would be continued development and conciliation activities,� he said, adding, �Economic development, unemployment and restoring peace would be the key areas.�

�There should be no room for complacency as it had happened so many times with the Congress party in the past. The responsibility has increased manifold for us,� Gogoi said.

Gogoi�s swearing-in ceremony will take place at Raj Bhavan tomorrow.

Gogoi also expressed his gratitude towards the Government employees who have worked hard in successfully implementing the Government schemes.

Earlier, seasoned politician and Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee commented that the voters of Assam have shown the right places to the opposition parties, who played communal card and instability tactics to secure power.

�The people of Assam, this time, have voted for continuity and conciliation and Tarun Gogoi deserves all the credit for that,� he pointed out.

All India Congress Committee general secretary Digvijay Singh, who was also the election in-charge of Assam for the Assembly election, said that the challenge before the new Government in the next five years would be to perform better than what it had done in the last two terms together.

The Congress secured clear mandate in the recently announced results of the Assam Assembly election.
