Mahanta in the line of fire

Worse is yet to come for Asom Gana Parishad. The party now stands crippled with escalating revolt against president Prafulla Kumar Mahanta. His alleged autocratic style of functioning is believed to have forced a circle of dedicated party leaders to join the ruling Congress. Vice president Apurba Bhattacharya will join Congress on June 24. His trusted men are also in touch with the ruling party.  Party insiders blame Mahanta and his associates for the impending exodus. Assamtime was the first to break the deepening crises in the regional party citing Bhattacharya's contact with Congress. He left AGP on Tuesday to join the Congress.
