Gogoi takes on state BJP

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has dared BJP to substantiate the allegations that his government did not clear Rajnath Singh’s stock-taking visit.

In statement on Sunday, Gogoi charged the state BJP unit with taking recourse to falsehood alleging that the state government did not give the go-ahead to the Union Home Minister to visit Assam citing security reasons.

Terming it a blatant lies, Gogoi said that his government did not give the go-ahead to the Union Home Minister to visit Assam on security grounds. He said that ministry of home affairs did not send any itinerary to the state government regarding the visit of Rajnath Singh to Assam.

Challenging the state BJP, Gogoi said, "If the BJP is in possession of the official communique, let it disclose to the public. Or else the party must tender an unconditional apology to the people of the state."

Gogoi’s statement assumed significance a day after BJP president Siddharth Bhattacharyee alleged that the Assam government refused to facilitate the Union minister’s visit. /
