Political highhandedness is rampant among ministers in the country. We often come across instances wherein a minister or an MLA tries use his clout in order to get something done. The 2014 General Elections saw former Union Minister and Congress leader, Chiranjeevi incur the public’s ire. A voter stopped the actor-turned-politician and his family members when they tried to walk into the polling centre even as others were standing in the queue.
However sitting MLA from Mangaldai Guru Jyoti Das isn’t of the same mould, much to the surprise of Dr Bhabadev Goswami. Here’s the story in his own words:
‘Yesterday we did Endoscopic Polypectomy on this man, and removed a bleeding polyp from his stomach. This is not the news to share in FB.There is something more .
He came to my clinic on last Friday and met me at 11pm after waiting for 3 hours as his serial no was 51. On Monday morning, I did the Gastroscopy on him at 8 AM as he was sitting and waiting outside the Endoscopy room for 1 hour. Yesterday, again he came for Polypectomy and was waiting outside my Endoscopy room, sitting with other patients for his turn.
We finished the procedure, and I was busy in my consultation room with other patients, he came to my room and thanked me and my staff and he introduced himself as the MLA from Mongoldoi.
I was surprised and was difficult to believe it.
I asked my assistant to check it on the internet. I called another MLA who is a friend of mine to confirm the fact. Due to my busy schedule, I don’t get time to update myself about the outside world except my profession now a days.
Yes he is Guru Jyoti Das MLA, Assam Assembly. My staff told me that all these 3 days he was in the reception for hrs. No security personal with him, No other boys with him.
Only yesterday, he was accompanied by his wife and two friends. But neither he nor his wife /friends gave his identity to the reception and asked for early entry .
For me this is an extraordinary experience. I am sharing this experience with all as Mr Das has shown an example of an ideal Aam Admi leader with a new culture. I salute this man’
