Guwahati: In sharp response to the Assam CM’s admission that he has failed to curb corruption in the state, the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) on Sunday said that Tarun Gogoi has lost his moral ground to remain in office.
AGP working president Atul Bora said that “It’s not only corruption, the chief minister has failed in every sector. He has failed to check inflation, flood and erosion, influx too in the past 12 years of his reign. Does he need any more reason to continue as chief minister.”
Prior, on Saturday, Gogoi, at a press conference, had said that he failed to restrain corruption in the state. “I admit that no department in my government is free from corruption and I have failed to check it.”
The AGP working president also refused the chief minister’s allegation that the regional party failed to identify illegal infiltrators during its possession.
Bora said that “During our reign we had to fight the controversial Illegal Migrants (Determination by Tribunal) Act before dealing with illegal migrants. But now, the Gogoi government doesn’t need to face such barrier. He only lacks will to solve the problem. We don’t want him to resign. We just want him to do some self-retrospection.”
