Sonia Gandhi in Guwahati today; People defy ULFA bandh to attend rally
More than 10,000 people braved a 12-hour ULFA bandh to attend the celebration of the Congress-led Tarun Gogoi government's completion of first year of its third term in office which was attended by UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi. Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi has led the Congress to three successive electoral victories in Assam but the question of his successor has sparked off tension among the next generation leaders. On her one-day visit Mrs Gandhi is meeting the party's state leadership. Sources have told NDTV that the main agenda on Mrs Gandhi's programme is to address the increasing factionalism within the Assam unit of the party.
