The district Congress has sent separate memoranda to Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Bhubaneswar Kalita and Karimganj District Congress president Satu Roy to take action against Siddeque Ahmed, an associate Congress MLA from South Karimganj and Congress leader Mantaj Ali who is also president of the Karimganj Zila Parishad.

Addressing a press meet at Hailakandi yesterday, district Congress president Ashok Duttagupta, APCC member Hilal Laskar and Samsul Islam Barlaskar were apprehensive that the proposed rally could be aimed at disturbing communal harmony in the district.

They demanded intervention of the Chief Minister as well as of the APCC chief against Siddeque and Mantaj. THE SENTINEL
