Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi
today said he would soon file a defamation suit against rights
activist Akhil Gogoi for his allegation that the chief
minister and his family have immovable assets abroad.
"The allegations are not only absurd but are malicious
and politically motivated to misguide the people of the state.
I will soon file a defamation case against him," the chief
minister said in a statement here.
"My daughter and son-in-law have a house in the US but
other than that none of my relatives or wife has any house of
property there," he said.
"If it can be proved that either any of my immediate
family members or any other relative has a house in the US,
then I shall make a will gifting all those properties to Akhil
Gogoi," he said.
He warned the activist to refrain from making any
false and baseless allegations.
Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) leader Akhil Gogoi
had made allegations yesterday that the chief minister had
acquired five houses in the US.
