Gogoi in New Delhi to meet Sonia

Chief minister Tarun Gogoi is camping in New Delhi hardly a week ahead of the much-awaited cabinet reshuffle. Sources in Koinadhara told Assam Times that he is still indecisive on the new faces in the soon to be reshuffled cabinet.

The confusion centres mainly around Sarat Borkotoky and Anjan Dutta---he sticks to one of the duo. The name of Debobrata Saikia is believed to have been dropped at the eleventh hour who is likely to be the parliamentary secretary later.

If Borkotoky is inducted Dutta must be given an important post at the Rajiv Bhawan which Gogoi really wants. Gogoi is expected to meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Saturday for her seal of approval. Before that he would again talk to APCC president

Bhubneswar Kalita. On Sunday the chief minister would be back to Guwahati and the reshuffle is expected on Tuesday or Wednesday.
