According to noted Assamese Journalist and editor-in-chief of NewsLive, an Assamese satellite channel, Atanu Bhuyan, has told North East India Blog on a popular networking site Twitter, that Akhil Gogoi is a Maoist.
According to him, one should go to Doiyang Tongani as a common and ask people from there what Akhil Gogoi did to them. AGP ( Asom Gana Parishad) coming to power in next election is like day dream, he opines in the same social networking site.
This accusation against Akahil Gogoi as Maoist is nothing new though. Few years back, there was many news stories about Akhil Gogoi being a Maoist. Recently, he was also accused of being ‘managed’ by former Assam Chief Minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta. There are few tweets by various people how Akhil Gogoi conveniently avoid mentioning AGP government in his speeches about wrong doings by government of Assam.
Atanu Bhuyan’s recent allegation seems to be in response to Akhil Gogoi’s recent press release where he claimed that NewsLive/Himanta Biswa Sarma has committed a corporate fraud by investing in NEwslive by proxy.
