Cong to remain satisfied with 50 seats

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi is confident of winning over 60 seats in the assembly polls. But the poll pundits of the ruling party are sure of maximum 50 seats only. A confidential report of the puts the figure at maximum 50. But the report is confident of a Congress I-led government with the support of either BPF or AIUDF. On the other hand BPF is expected to gain from 10 to 13. But they would support only Tarun Gogoi is retained as the Chief Minister. The ruling party has another option: AIUDF is ready to support the government if Bhubneswar Kalita replaces Tarun Gogoi.


However, senior leaders told Assam Times that they were not aware of any confidential report. They said their party would get absolute majority to form the government of their own.

IT’S NOT THAT TARUN GOGOI MINISTRY IS THE BEST OR GOOD. IT IS THE UNFORTUNATE FACT THAT, PRESENTLY ASSAM DOES NOT HAVE A BETTER ALTERNATIVE.

I am partially agree wth Pallavi but not fully.Because I feel, Tarun Gogoi government failed to control the bureaucrats, and the money released for development works, such as in Panchayats level or for any such local bodies were misused by various different offices. And it is found that some people of the village level became a rich men within a night.

Congress is indeed going to stay here whether we want it or not merely by virtue of no suitable alternate is available 4 Assam ! No body wants the old bankrupt regime of AGP back even when Congress Govt has failed on many developmental front !

Bishwajeet, does every body want to have a government to govern who have the records to face the highest corruption cases since last ten years? I dont know. But I am sorry to say that Tarun Gogoi minsitry just tried to stya away from ecery allegation by saying: those who have/had cried against them were/are plotically motivated. And for me whether Congress or AGP or BJP, they are all in the same boat. And for your kind information m not Congressee, not a BJP or AGP or AIUDF member. Just dont mix up conscious mind with politics, like every political party of Assam are doing. Think rationally, think impartially. For me very political party of Assam are not for the common people, people living in the grass root level.
