Guwahati/ 4th May’2018 (Prag News Desk):
In an incident which might just open up cans of worms in Assam state’s BJP led government, a senior member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was allegedly bashed up by Jorhat MP Kamakhya Prasad Tasa and few of his supporters during the Bihu Mela in Sonari.
The senior BJP leader, Kajol Dey speaking about the incident alleged that Tasa was after him during the past few days and the whole issue was going on for a while like a cold war after an audio clip of Dey and a senior Congress leader was leaked. He added that he was beaten up by the MP based on the audio recording of him and a senior Congress leader.
He further added justifying his action, “I did not discuss anything wrong with the Congress member. The conversation with the Congress member was misinterpreted by Tasa. This may be the only reason he along with few other men attacked me.’
He added that they met only during Bihu celebrations and this time too the meeting was informal and nothing sort of alleged accusation put on him by his own party men.
“We met to discuss certain programs about Bihu and in between, we also discussed some political issues which are very common thing to do when two politicians meet. The MP coming and beating me up in front of the public was a humiliation for me”, he added.
He added that even though he was bashed up in the public and humiliated in front of everyone, he wouldn’t still lodge any complaint against the MLA as he doesn’t want to create a bad impression of the BJP party to the public.
While on the other hand, media personals tried to contact Kamakhya Prasad Tasa for further comments on this issue, but he couldn’t be reached for any statements from his side.
