CLP uncertain; dissidents turn pilgrims

The dissident Congress leaders skipped their visit to the governor after the AICC announced CLP meet  by May 28 to sort out the difference.

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi was believed to have told Sarat Borotoky that AICC would depute Motlal Vora to attend the CLP meet forcing them to halt for a few days.

Top AICC sources told Assam Times that Vora, Congress treasurer has yet to schedule his much-hyped fence-mending visit to Guwahati. It has become clear that the CLP meet is unlikley by May 31.

In a move that signalls a temporary ceasefire, a group of dissident ministers and MLAs is on a visit to Bihar. Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma, the front face of the dissident group is leading the 10 member pilgrims team to a renowned monastery.
