Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi is likely to resign on Thursday, reports said Wednesday.

Gogoi is expected to submit his resignation to Congress president Sonia Gandhi tomorrow.

Gogoi had last Friday announced that he will resign taking full responsibility for the party`s dismal performance in the Lok Sabha elections in the state.

"I will submit my resignation to party president Sonia Gandhi taking full responsibility for the party`s performance in the state," Gogoi had said.
"This is not an emotional decision. This is a temporary setback. I have seen such a situation before and the party has always bounced back," he said.
