In a bid to reward the MLAs who left dissidents, chief minister Tarun Gogoi has announced 13 parliamentary secretaries who would take oath on September 16. Gogoi on Monday announced Habul Chakravorty, Rupjyoti Kurmi, Ghanashyam Kalita, Hemanta Talukdar, Kamalakhya Purkayastha, Sushanta Borgohain, Arun Phukan, Arati Kakati, Rumi Nath, SR Subba, Shivcharan Basumatary, Monica Bora and Jamaluddin Ahmed as new parliamentary secretaries.

Sources in the chief minister’s office said Gogoi is gearing up for a minor expansion of his council of ministers where two of his colleagues would be dropped and three would be inducted. Assam Times Political Research Bureau broke the story last week how Gogoi was preparing to quell the dissidence and to reward a section of dissident MLAs who decided to remain with the Congress.
