TROU­BLE AT HOME

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Ev­ery­one knows As­sam Chief Min­is­ter Tarun Go­goi’s son Gau­rav and state Ed­u­ca­tion and Health Min­is­ter Hi­manta Biswa Sarma don’t get along. But it took the mo­lesta­tion case in Guwahati for the rift to be­come pub­lic. The in­ci­dent was aired on News Live, owned by Sarma’s wife. Go­goi Ju­nior is be­lieved to have been be­hind his fa­ther’s at­tack on the chan­nel and its ed­i­tor- in- chief. But the Congress high com­mand was not amused. It or­dered a pub­lic rec­on­cil­i­a­tion. On July 20, Go­goi called Sarma to his home. The next day Gau­rav vis­ited Sarma for two hours. The fa­ther- son duo knows that Sarma is on his way up, hav­ing been sent to Gu­jarat on July 21 to help the Congress pre­pare for the Assem­bly polls.
