Trip to Bangladesh: Patowary dares Gogoi's preparedness

The Asom Gana Parishad on Wednesday has contradicted Assam Chief Minister's Tarun Gogoi's statement that the government is ready send Chandramohan Patowary to Bangladesh if Opposition leader wants to ensure talk with ULFA. Addressing a press conference in the city Opposition leader Chnadra Mohan Patowary said Mr Gogoi has no right to do so.

But Mr Patowary maintained that if need be he is ready to leave for Bangladesh only after the Union home ministry's permission. Mr Patowary said,"Gogoi said me to leave for Bangladesh. Why I should do it only if Gogoi says. I can leave for Bangladesh only if the union home ministry asks."

The regional party has also countered the Chief Minister's allegation on the floor of the House on Tuesday that the AGP is behind the killing culture saying these were LTTEE and Vindarawala in Punjab who were born and brought up byCongress."

The AGP further alleged that the Government has definitely link with ULFA if what Assam Cricket Association General secretary Bikash Baruah has said is to be observed. Baruah disclosed that the decision to seek ULFA's help to ensure a peaceful National Games was not of his own.

AGP said the ACA is headed by Chief minister Tarun Gogoi which was desperately seeking ULFA's help.
