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.
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).
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.
