The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) has refuted reports that some more leaders would soon desert the party. According to some reports, among others, former minister and MP Prodyut Bordoloi, former minister and MLA Rockeybool Hussain, and former minister Bismita Gogoi would quit the party at any time. Refuting such reports, APCC General Secretary Rana Bora, in a press statement, claimed that no Congress leaders would not quit the party. “ We have noticed that some reports claimed Prodyut Bordoloi, Rockeybool Hussain, Bismita Gogoi are ready to quit Congress. These reports are baseless and no Congress leaders defect to the party," Bora added. Former Minister Hussain also denied reports that he would quit the party.
A few days earlier, former APCC president Ripun Bora defected from the party to the Mamata Benarjee-led Trina Mool Congress.
