Former minister cremated in Golaghat

The mortal remains of Prabin Kumar Gogoi consigned to flames after the lifeless AGP veteran arrived in Golaghat on Tuesday.  His fans thronged in thousands at his residence as soon as the body arrived to be followed by last respect to the former minister.

Then his body was taken with a huge procession to the cremation ground. Many people deplored that the minister was cremated with full state honour. Gogoi died at the Gauhati Medical College Hospital on Monday after prolonged illness.
