Dissdents demand CLP meet by 10 days

The dissident Congress ministers and MLAs have again served 10 days ultimatum to the party leadership to hold CLP meeting to discuss the poll debacle.

After the end of an emergency meeting of the dissident camp at the official residence of Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma, the health minister said that the impasse in the political front should be addressed by the chief minister himself.

He, however, said that they would formaly send the memorandum to the party high command on Monday.  Altogether 41 dissident MLAs and ministers attended the meeting followed by a feast on Sunday evening.

The dissident meeting and the feast evoked sharp reaction from a cross section of the people two days after Hamren SP Nityananda Goswami and his PSO Ratul Nunisa were killed at an encounter with UPLA in Karbi Anglong district.
