Erosion in Jorhat AGP

Its an erosion in AGP. That too three months before the Lok Sabha polls. Senior AGP leader and former minister Hitendra Nath Goswami resigned from the party’s primary membership on Sunday.

Hours after it, 28 local bodies in Jorhat deserted the party. They include three top central committee leaders. Goswami and his followers are believed to have been in touch with BJP. Notably, Goswami resigned from the party’s executive body in June alleging that the party leadership have been listening him. Since then, he has been retaining the party’s primary membership.
