JORHAT, March 19 � Criticising the AIUDF and other rival parties for their failure in nominating strong candidates against his son Gaurav Gogoi in Kaliabor Lok Sabha constituency, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today said in Golaghat that the Congress will again have a cake-walk in the constituency, which had earlier sent him and his younger brother Dip Gogoi to the Parliament.
During his departure from the historic Athkhelia Namghar in the district, Gogoi said that the rival parties were too weak to decide their candidates for the seat and even to choose those weak candidates they took a lot of time.
�No strong candidate has been nominated by our rival parties in Kaliabor. They had taken a lot of time even in deciding their candidates,� said Gogoi.
In his reply to reporters, the Chief Minister also denied there was any secret understanding between his party and AIUDF, which conspicuously did not nominate a senior leader for contesting from Kaliabor, who could cause a difficult situation for the Congress.
�Ajmal�s brother was in the third position during the last election, while my brother won the popular mandate. We have no understanding with AIUDF this time also,�said the Chief Minister.
