AGP to observe Black Day on Wednesday

Guwahati: Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) will observe 'Black Day' across Assam on Wednesday to coincide with the swearing-in of Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi at the Raj Bhavan here for the third consecutive term, AGP general secretary Hitendra Nath Goswami said here.

AGP, which received a drubbing in the assembly polls, has also decided to approach the court against alleged tampering of EVM by the Congress he said after the meeting of the AGP steering committee here.

"We have evidence that Congress had tampered with EVMs which explains the reason for its unexpected success of winning as many as 78 seats in the poll.

"We are consulting lawyers and analysing all legal aspects which will help us to approach the court against the attempts to rig the poll by tampering with the EVMs", he said.

A meeting has been also convened to discuss the reasons for the unprecented debacle of the opposition, he added.
