Sonowal grills MLAs

State BJP president Sarbananda Sonowal on Monday grilled his party legislators to find out the real one who did not toe on the party line in the recent Rajya Sabha polls.

Sonowal took statements from all the five MLAs who claimed to have voted for Opposition consensus candidate Haidor Hussain.

Barring Prasanta Phukan, other Manoranjan Das, Dilip Moran and Jadav Deka and Ranjit Dutta are believed to have apprised Sonowal that they did produce their ballots before the party agent after casting their votes.

But Phukan did not produce it citing absence of his party agent as he was casting his votes. That’s why, his role seems to have raised doubt.

Sonowal’s meeting with the legislators assumed significance a day after the party set up a three member panel to probe the sensational allegations. Led by former MLA Mison Ranjan Das, the panel is probing the allegations against them.
