7 MLAs to miss the boat!

Dozens of sitting Congress MLAs are likley to stay out of the poll contest early next year. The ruling party is unlikely to field them again. But the party leadership are trying to call it their reluctance.

Sources told Assam Times that these include Sarat Bortkotoky, Dr Bhumidhar Barman, Abdul Muhib Majumdar, Pranab Gogoi and Rameshwar Dhanowar. The fate of chief minister Tarun Gogoi depends on the party high command.

When the secret decision went open secret, APCC president Anjan Dutta told reporters on Tuesday that  around 7 MLAs are reluctant to contest in the elections next year.
