Reacting to that, AGP spokesman, Mr Bhattacharya, said the party had the highest regard for the EC and given credit for holding free and fair poll in the state but on the said day and said time neither was a press conference called nor any of the two leaders present in Guwahati.
'' I was in Tinsukia and our president Goswami was in Tezpur.
Besides that it was not a press conference but a group of journalists coming to our party office as usual in the afternoon and talked to some of our party colleagues, '' he said.
The CEO said the DM would inquire about the matter and would file a report soon.
