FIR lodged against Gogoi for holding press meet

An FIR was on Monday lodged in Guwahati against Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi under electoral laws on the instructions of the Election Commission for holding a press conference when the second and final phase of assembly polls in the states were on as it could have influenced voters.

Deputy Election Commissioner Sandeep Saxena told reporters here that election authorities in Assam had told Gogoi that holding a press conference within 48 hours before end of poll was not advisable.

But Gogoi went ahead with the event where he reportedly alleged that a candidate and a former minister was detained in his house.
