Tarun Gogoi challenges AGP claim of teachers’ suicides in Assam

Guwahati,  (PTI):  Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has challenged the veracity of opposition AGP’s allegation that 3,832 teachers had committed suicide in the state because of non-payment of their dues. In a statement here today, Gogoi said the state government would be keen to institute an inquiry, if the AGP leaders could furnish relevant documents justifying their claim.

He also urged upon the opposition Asom Gana Parishad leadership to furnish district-wise report in support of their claim. If the detailed report of farmers’ suicide was given, an exhaustive inquiry would be ordered very soon, Gogoi said.  Asserting the state government takes any suicidal case coming to the fore very seriously, he added his government would immediately instituted an inquiry to pin down the reasons of such suicides and suggest remedies.
