Akhil ups ante on Himanta

Assam RTI activist Akhil Gogoi seems to have shaken Dispur trading charges after charges against health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma. In a sensational revelation, Gogoi told reporters that the minister last year purchased two luxurious cars worth Rs 40 lakh within a period of 2 months for his 5-year old daughter. Gogoi said the source of the fund is doubtful. Hours after it, the minister and his wife came out with a statement saying that that they had borrowed loan from bank and that his wife Riniki Bhuyan Sarma receives Rs 1.50 lakh as salary from Newslive, where she is the chairperson. But a lot has remained unanswered. Strangely, no one from either from the government or from the party has so far come to the rescue of the powerful minister. Notably, Sarma said he would sue the KMSS leader in court.
