CNN-IBN quoting sources said the Congress is upset with him for failing to understand the gravity of the situation, by going to the troubled zone only on the fifth day of the violence.
Now, in a strong signal to their three-time Chief Minister, the party has set up a 10-member co-ordination committee for the state. In fact, some Congress MPs like Rehman Khan have openly admitted that there has been some failure.
“There is a failure somewhere, but violence is contained. And now the Chief Minister is visiting. The major problem is how to rehabilitate the people who have fled, how to infuse confidence in the people and take up the rehabilitation system and see they are moved to their places from the camps,” Rehman Khan said.
While the party for now has officially backed Gogoi he has been warned to pull his act together. The ethnic clashes between Bodos and Muslims over the past six days have killed 44 people so far.
