The Jorhat district unit of Raijor Dal has condemned chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for allegedly speaking in humiliating terms about Sivasagar MLA Akhil Gogoi in the Assam Assembly.
Raijor Dal Jorhat district unit in a statement on Monday said that it did not befit the office of a chief minister to speak disrespectfully of another public representative in the august house.
Chief minister Sarma on Monday had said that Akhil Gogoi could not attend assembly as he was under treatment for psychological issues.
He had further said that it seemed that Gogoi was going to spread the infection to all the members in the Assembly, the way he was going from table to table.
Raijor Dal said that Gogoi for the past two decades had opposed the anti-people policies of the governments and has raised burning issues of the state.
Jorhat district unit president Dibyajoti Sharma, working president Dilip Kumar Bordoloi and general secretary Surjya Kumar Das further demanded that the government release Akhil Gogoi and he be allowed to have an open debate with the chief minister on the floor of the House on important issues.
