Cong to field Bhagawati in Tezpur!

In a major development, Congress high command is understood to have been considering the name of Jainimi Bhagawati to be fielded in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls from Tezpur seat.

Senior AICC leaders told Assam Times that Bhagawati, who is at work in London, is the only choice of prime minister Dr Manmohan Singh who is well known to him.

Bhagawati, a retired Indian Foreign Service officer has a strong family back ground and his father is a veteran Congress leader and freedom fighter. But final decision would be taken only after recomeendation from Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and APCC president Bhubneswar Kalita.
