Taking potshots at his successor Sarbananda Sonowal, former Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi claimed that the present Chief Minister is incapable of running the government and it is actually RSS which is running the show. Addressing media persons in a press meet at his residence on Friday, Gogoi commented that the present ruling state government is being completely run by RSS.
Pointing at the state government’s meeting held on Thursday, where BJP and RSS members were present, Tarun Gogoi stated that the meeting itself was the proof of who is being controlled by whom. He also stated that because of RSS’s recommendation the tenure of Assam’s Chief Secretary V K Pipersenia was extended.
Moreover slamming Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his ‘gesture’ of providing Assam with only a 700 bedded AIIMS hospital, Gogoi referred to it as a ‘consolation prize.’ Commenting on the controversial topic of Deendayal Upadhyaya, Tarun Gogoi claimed that the BJP leaders do not know Deendayal Upadhyaya and further stated ‘Sonowal, Himanta and Patowary are spineless, who do not possess the blood of an Assamese but the blood of Badan Chandra Barphukan.’
