Former Assam CM Prafulla Mahanta during a press meet said he will support former Congress CM Tarun Gogoi if he switches from nationalism to regionalism on Thursday.
Mahanta said regionalism is still at a latent state but for the development of a state regionalism is a must. It needs to grow and now is the right time.
In connection to the Baghjan fire, Mahanta said according to the district administration, 16 families have been affected. Asom Gana Parishad members are working diligently to help the affected families of Baghjan fire. He urges the government to reach out to the vulnerable and thinks a dialogue between the government and OIL authorities can help resolve the matters.
