Guwahati: Former Assam Chief Minister
Prafulla Kumar Mahanta on Wednesday accused the Congress-led state
government of trying to make the secret killings of ULFA
cadres during the erstwhile Asom Gana Parishad regime as an
election issue.

Charging Tarun Gogoi for being allegedly involved in
the "secret killing", Mahanta, also the leader of the
opposition, demanded that a thorough probe should be ordered
to bring out the truth.

Mahanta alleged that Gogoi and his Congress government
was trying to accuse his erstwhile AGP government in "secret
killing" keeping an eye on the ensuing election and to protect
the party`s vote bank.

He alleged that the government had totally failed to
control law and order and check corruption, including the
multi-crore development fund scandal in North Cachar Hills.
