Patowary resigns as AGP chief

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 14 � The results of the Assembly elections in the State have so upset the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) camp that president of the regional party Chandra Mohan Patowary today tendered his resignation from the post of the head of the party.

AGP vice-president and spokesman Apurba Bhattacharjee told this newspaper that Patowary today announced his resignation from the post of party president in a letter to working president of the party Phani Bhusan Choudhury. Patowary made the announcement assuming moral responsibility for the electoral debacle of the party, said the sources.

Now on, Bhattacharjee said, as per the constitution of the party, working president Phani Bhusan Choudhury would have to act as the president of the party.

It needs mention here that Patowary, as the president of the regional party, had been claiming that his party would head the next Government in the State and the Congress would not be able to secure more than 33 seats.

However, the AGP could secure only 10 seats in the Assembly elections, while the Congress could win as many as 78 seats.
