Akhil Gogoi's arrest imminent

Authorities on Thursday have issued a non bailable warrant against Gogoi. The action is coming up after the Dhemaji district administration lodged a complaint against him alleging his role in the recent incident in front of DC office premises. Scores were injured when police and CRPF jawans sprang upon a mammoth gathering but according to the FIR a section of the people led by Akhil Gogoi pelted stones at the security forces deployed there.

It's absurd. It is a plan of the ruling party to defame him and play with his stronger image which has been supported by the people in general. It is plan of those who want to continue the corrupt practices in administration.

We fail to understand why administration is against Akhil Gogoi. He is not doing anything which is against the government. The government is spending crores of rupees on the advertisement on NREGA, PDS, etc. Infact Mr.Gogoi is helping both the State and the Central government for successful implementation of the government programs.

This is ridiculous. I knew Akhilda while I was studying in Cotton College. I was in Class 11 and he was doing his BA English. Though he was our senior, he would always find a few minutes to talk to us whenever we crossed roads.He had inspired a lot of us to follow our dreams. Even at that time, at the age of 20, Akhilda used to be against violence of any sort. In 1995-96, he had led an agitation against the Cotton College administration demanding professors to be more regular in taking classes. There was not a single incident of violence or vandalism. Akhilda had led the agitation by going on a hunger strike. So, if they are saying that someone like Akhilda, who loves O. Henry and looks upto Gandhi, is a maoist, then they are implying that by default, every human being is a maoist. Now, that's ridiculous!!
