Former chief Minister and veteran Congress leader on Saturday spoke to media that ex Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi could be BJP's chief ministerial candidate in Assam in next year's Assembly polls.
Three time Assam CM's sources told him that Ranjan Gogoi's name was there in the list of the BJP's candidates' list for the chief minister's post.
Addressing the media, Gogoi alleged, "If the former CJI could go to Rajya Sabha, then he might also agree to be the next CM candidate for BJP in Assam."
Former CM Gogoi further added that as BJP was happy with the former CJI's judgement on Ayodhya Ram Mandir case, his approach towards politics became easier.
"Ranjan Gogoi gradually entered politics, step by step, by accepting the Rajya Sabha nomination. Why did he not refuse the Rajya Sabha membership?" Tarun Gogoi grilled.
"Ranjan Gogoi has a political ambition and so he accepted the Rajya Sabha nomination. It won't be surprising if he becomes the next CM candidate," the three time former CM Gogoi stated.
Former Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi informed that he is not going to be the next 'prospective' CM candidate of the Congress in Assam. Rather, he has been advocating on to form a 'Grand Alliance' of non-BJP parties, including the AIUDF, Left and AGM, to oust the ruling party in the assembly elections and kept doors open for any new parties.
