Infighting in AGP: Boro vs. Kalita

Our Guwahati Correspondent: All is not well with the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) as it is mired in yet another internal bickering.

Former AASU leader and the sitting AGP spokesman Prabin Boro is up in arms against former Health and Family Welfare Minister and sitting MLA Dr Kamala Kalita.

Mr Boro has sought stern action against Dr Kamala Kalita for making contradictory statements before the media regarding the reunification decision in the recent meet at Mangaldoi.According to Mr Boro, what he briefed the media on the Mongaldoi meeting was the “not his personal comment”.

Notably, Dr Kalita had said that regarding reunification Mr Boro’s statement before the media was his personal view and not of the party which irked the former AASU leader.

According to Mr Boro, “the Mangaldai meet did not take any proposal for reunification of AGP with AGP-P. It only decided to form a committee to hold talks with like-minded parties on all issues, including unification of regional forces”.

Sources say Mr Boro has lodged a complaint with party President Brindabon Goswami seeking disciplinary action against Dr Kalita saying Dr Kalita has violated party discipline and as such he deserves stern action as per the laid down rules of the party
