Hiranya Bora quits Congress

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, June 29 � Senior Congress leader Hiranya Bora today resigned from the primary membership of the party in protest against the leadership of Assam Pradesh Congress Committee president Anjan Dutta.

In a letter sent to All India Congress Committee president Sonia Gandhi, Bora, also a member of the AICC, said recent developments in the State Congress had left him �anguished and dejected�.

He described APCC chief Dutta as a tainted man, who was under the CBI scanner for his alleged involvement in the Sharada chit fund scam.

Dutta had also lied on record on his educational qualification and was running the party in the State like his personal fiefdom and was �often indulging in witch-hunting against the senior partymen�, Bora alleged.

Besides, Dutta was surrounded by people with alleged criminal backgrounds and had offered them party positions. He was also making insulting comments against the Bodos and tea tribe communities, Bora said in his letter to Sonia Gandhi.

Bora, also an all India organising secretary of the Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC), the trade union front organisation of the Congress, told this newspaper that he along with another senior Congressman as well as AICC member Bolin Kauli and APCC members Rana Khan, Adil Shah and Diganta Kalita, would hold a meeting with the city as well as other district-based like-minded members of the Congress, on July 26 in the city.

The meeting will discuss the developments within the party and also chalk out the future course of action.

When asked for his comment, Dutta said he would make a statement on it only after receiving the replies of Bora and four others to the showcause notices served on them on June 23. Tomorrow is the last date for sending their replies, Dutta said.

On June 23, a showcause notice was served by the APCC on Bora for addressing a press conference against the party leadership at the Guwahati Press Club on June 20. Similar notices were also served on Rana Khan, Diganta Kalita and Adil Shah for giving company to Bora at the press conference.

The APCC also served a showcause notice on Bolin Kauli the same day for his June 22 adverse comments on the party leadership.

All of them were asked to show cause within seven days.
