Flashing out the recent Guwahati girl’s molestation row, KMSS leader and RTI activist Akhil Gogoi today claimed in a press meet that one journalist of satellite channel NewsLive, named Gaurav Jyoti Neog is the prime culprit behind the inhuman incident. Defending his own claim, Akhil Gogoi also announced that he had video footage of NewsLive journalist Gaurav Jyoti Neog, which is sufficient to prove that Neog was the prime culprit.
Later when the attending journalists asked to show the video footage, Akhil Gogoi said that he would submit it to the police first, and then he will submit to journalists. The most confusing point was Gogoi himself slammed Assam Police terming them as Ass Licker and Dalals(Broker) of Congress a few minutes earlier in the press meet. Here the question can be raised, while Akhil himself shown distrust towards Assam Police, how he could say that he would submit the video evidence to the police first than submitting it to media. How long Akhil need to submit the video to Assam Police?
After Akhil Gogoi’s press meet, we, Times of Assam sent our journalist to collect the video from him which he promised to deliver to media after 7 pm of yesterday evening. Even so, neither there was anybody present in the KMSS office, nor their gate was opened. Instead, our journalist came back waiting in front of the locked door of the KMSS office. When our journalist called Akhil Gogoi over the phone, Gogoi told me that he is in a live program of a satellite channel, which was a clear lie. This made the entire situation more mysterious.
At evening 9 PM, the Electronic Media Forum of Assam(EMFA) released a press statement urging Akhil Gogoi to prove his allegation against NewsLive journalist Gaurav Jyoti Neog before today 4 PM. Most importantly, another NewsLive journalist Parag Moni Aditya is the Working President of EMFA, which has been introduced today only. It is yet not certain that Akhil Gogoi really had such video footage, but his confidence in press meets the footage indicated some political motive. If Akhil didn’t have any political motive, then he would have submitted the video footage to media personnel who were asking about it in the press meet. If he did so, there would have more protests and pressure on the government to take serious action against the culprit. Even so, Akhil didn’t do such and resulted in a controversial situation over the issue.
Akhil may have video footage of NewsLive journalist Gaurav Jyoti Neog, which can prove Neog as the prime culprit. However, observing his past deeds, we can’t expect he would submit it to either police or media.
If Akhil Gogoi thinks that he can win the One Man Show, then he is wrong. It is already unfolded that most of his activities have been controversial as well as biased or evidence was hostile.
We can’t follow Akhil Gogoi with blind eyes, where he says ‘Assam Police is ass licker and dalal of Congress’ and at the same time show his trust in the same Assam police by telling about evidence submission to police.
Akhil Gogoi, it’s not about your ‘One Man Show’. It’s about our nation. It’s about our motherland. Prove your claim as true and force Assam government to throw the NewsLive journalist to jail. You are at the pillar of support from many Indians over this inhuman crime.
