Dissidence undying

A section of parliamentary secretaries are set to bear the brunt of dissidence. Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi is in a mood to reshuffle his cabinet to rein in the brigades.   Gogoi is believed to have talked to Sonia Gandhi to finetune the list.
Before his departure to Delhi, Gogoi suspended the four parliamentary secretaries who are known to be closed to Dr Himanta Biswa Saram . Gogoi hoped that the drama would be over within a few hours.

Earlier in the morning, Gogoi held a close door meeting with APCC president Bhubneswar Kalita. Kalita refused to divulge anything in detail. On the other hand, a few more legislators have joined the signature campaign in favour of the Chief Minister.
