Gohain blames third force for Raha incident

Union minister of state for railway Rajen Gohain blames it all on the third force for the recent Raha incident where a local protestor was killed in police firing.

Talking to reporters in Raha after visiting the widow of the firing victim Mintu Deori on Sunday, Gohain, who is also the MP from Nagaon said that without the involvement of the third force the incident would have taken place.

He reiterated that he still wanted the proposed AIIMS at Raha as the Central Assam area has been lagging behind on many fronts. “I still demand the AIIMS at Raha. I am not changing my position now. The Central Assam has been lingering,” said Gohain after conveying his deep sympathy to the bereaved family members.
