Trouble for dissident Congman

A sensational revelation seems to have generated no less heat within the Assam Congress these days. That too in the time of deepening dissidence within the Congress legislative body.

Trouble seems to have brewed for a former Union minister who is believed to have been harbouring dissident activities in the state. The former union minister is one among the twenty political leaders who are accused of holding account in foreign bank.

His name figures in a list submitted before the Supreme Court by senior leader Ram Jethmalani who charged him with stashing Rs 3,025 crores in foreign country.

The development assumes significance at a time when dissidence has paralyzed the Tarun Gogoi cabinet immediately after the ruling party suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of BJP in the Lok Sabha polls.
