Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will pay tribute to former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Wednesday. Tarun Gogoi breathed his last on Monday, after which condolences were expressed by the Congress. On Wednesday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also reached Guwahati and paid tribute to the former CM.
Tarun Gogoi is to be cremated on 26 November, before that his body has been kept in Guwahati for the last darshan.
It was informed by Assam Congress state president Ripun Bora that former Congress president Rahul Gandhi will reach Guwahati on Wednesday morning, along with other top Congress leaders will be present.
Let me tell you that Tarun Gogoi was the Chief Minister of Assam for almost a decade and a half and strengthened the Congress Party in the state. Tarun Gogoi also had a good hold in Delhi politics and was always considered close to the Gandhi family.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and other big leaders had mourned the death of Tarun Gogoi and talked to Gaurav Gogoi.
The Congress party has suffered two major setbacks in the last two days. After the death of Tarun Gogoi, Congress leader Ahmed Patel died on Wednesday. Ahmed Patel was also ill for the last one month and breathed his last at Medanta Hospital in Gurugram. In such a situation, there are also speculations about Rahul Gandhi coming back to Delhi from Guwahati soon.
