Gogoi’s alleged ‘affair’ with a lady dents his image

Untitled-8Politics in Assam have now centred round only one point- Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi’s alleged affair with a singer – Aloka Pandey Jha who claimed that she maintained close relationship with the CM. In an interview with a local satellite news channel on Sunday, Pandey, who is the daughter of folk artiste the late Pratima Barua Pandey, reiterated her claim that she was in a relationship with Gogoi from 2004 to 2006 and that she knew each and every room of Koinadhara — the Chief Minister’s official residence. She claimed the two of them had fallen in love when she used to visit Koinadhara to secure a government job for her after her mother’s death.
She had gone public in 2006 about the alleged affair, making Gogoi file a defamation suit against her. Asked about the singer’s reiteration of the charge, Gogoi said , “I am not going to file a defamation suit against her this time. What she said was baseless. Everybody knows the motive of the news channel’s airing of the interview”. The channel is owned by the wife of former powerful Congress Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who is now with the BJP”Untitled-9
