Dutta formally takes charge

Anjan Dutta formally took over as APCC president on Thursday at a function in the Rajiv Bhawan attended by chief minister Tarun Gogoi along with a few senior leaders. In his speech, Gogoi hoped that under Dutta’s leadership the party would be able to retain power in the 2016 assembly polls. Taking pot shots at BJP, Gogoi lambasted the BJP for its U-turn on all vital issues confronting the state. “We have seen the colours of BJP and that its Mission 84 is nothing but a figment of imagination,” he said. Amid rousing welcome the Amguri MLA said pined hopes on help and support from the party leaders and the grassroot level workers.
