GUWAHATI, Jan 10 � Reacting to Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi�s threat to sue him, Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) leader Akhil Gogoi on Monday stated that Tarun Gogoi should institute either a magisterial inquiry or order a CBI investigation into the allegations of property ownership in the US.
Talking to media persons at Dispur Last Gate here, where the KMSS had observed Hatred Day, Akhil said that threats would not intimidate the struggling class who want a corruption-free society. �The Tarun Gogoi government has threatened us on several earlier occasions, and our people have come out to challenge the Congress government,� said Akhil pointing out that no government office in the State was free of corruption and the poor people were paying the price for this situation.
Reminding the government that intimidation would not come in handy to stop the people from raising their voices, Akhil asserted that the peasants of the State will not take dictation from the government and neither sit silent over the unbridled corruption in the State. �The government machinery cannot put to end a people�s movement,� he said.
The peasant leader, armed with the traditional nangal and japi put by a farmer while working in the field, announced that the KMSS has taken the pledge to bring to light all acts of corruption and this movement against corruption will be launched in every nook and corner of the State. Akhil also mentioned that this movement would be peaceful and continue even if he is arrested.
