Brindabon Goswami to step from from Opp leader in Asom
Guwahati, Jul 23 (UNI) The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) president Brindabon Goswami has decided to resign from the post of the Leader of the Opposition following heavy internal pressure from the party to do so.
The AGP this evening started a crucial steering committee meeting on the issue and a final decision is expected officially, sources close to Mr Goswami said.
Mr Goswami is under fire from the party leaders and MLAs to quit one of the two posts- Leader of the Opposition or Party Presidentship - to give required push for strengthening the party.
The AGP fared badly in the last Assembly election, which demoralised the party as the internal dissension has been rising against the present leadership.
