“To be honest I don’t have any ‘fruitful’ relationship with Sadin Pratidin group. Sometimes they also used to publish news reports against KMSS and me. I don’t have enough money to use media houses in my personal interest. I don’t need to shoot from someone else’s shoulder.” Gogoi added.

Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) adviser Akhil Gogoi on Tuesday claimed that he “welcomed” a defamation lawsuit from Superintendent of Police, Kamrup, Partha Sarathi Mahanta who alleges he had dragged his name in Supari syndicate.

Countering Mahanta’s recent ‘clarifications’ with reference to the syndicate raj, Gogoi said that “SP Mahanta is trying to gag media by slapping defamation cases. Mahanta believes that Sadin Pratidin group has indulged in a conspiracy against his nexus with the supari syndicate using my shoulder, it’s really funny. I asked the owner of the media house to file a case on it.”

“To be honest I don’t have any ‘fruitful’ relationship with Sadin Pratidin group. Sometimes they also used to publish news reports against KMSS and me. I don’t have enough money to use media houses in my personal interest. I don’t need to shoot from someone else’s shoulder.” Gogoi added.

It may be mentioned that Mahanta had filed a criminal defamation case and civil defamation suit of Rs 100 crore against the proprietor of Sadin-Pratidin group Jayanta Barua and others for publishing, what he said, a false & fabricated news report recently mentioning his nexus with the supari syndicate.

Mahanta said his wife Indrani Barua who is a senior Assam Police official, has also filed a civil defamation suit of Rs 100 crore against Jayanta Barua and others for dragging her name in the supari syndicate news report.

During the press conference, Gogoi also disclosed the properties list of Mahanta and his wife Indrani Barua, which the duo submitted in the Ministry of Home affairs (MHA).  

Earlier, KMSS alleged that top officials of Assam police held a meeting with International Supari (Areca nut) Mafia at Hotel Taj Vivanta on August 6.

But addressing a conference recently, Mahanta clarified that “It is completely false news that myself and my wife recently went to Taj Vivanta Hotel to meet supari syndicate mafia. We went to the hotel to attend two private functions as invitees,”

Gogoi also alleged that in the illegal syndicate, a section of superior officers were involved and the syndicates are being controlled by the supervision of few SPs in the state.

Two days ago, Pratidin Group had revealed the properties list of the SP family. People get astonished after knowing the huge assets held by the Police officer – who is leading the club of Assam’s crorepati IPS.

In his properties list to MHA, the IPS officer mentioned that he acquired six expensive assets inherent from his father Sarat Mahanta – who was a professor, retired in 1997.

Questioning about his legitimacy, Gogoi launched a blistering attack on Partha Sarathi saying “His (Partha Sarathi Mahanta) father lived a simple life during his service period. He used a bicycle to travel from one place to another. He was a man of principle. He was a ‘Down to Earth’ man. But his son Partha spoils his father’s ideology.” : Akhil added.
