The present Assam government is run by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), this was alleged by former chief minister Tarun Gogoi.
Addressing a press conference in Guwahati on Friday, Gogoi said, “The RSS is directly interfering in the functioning of the BJP-led government in the state.”

The former chief minister was mentioning the state government’s meeting held on Thursday which was attended by a number of BJP and RSS members. “This proves that the Assam government is not run by Sarbananda Sonowal but by RSS. Sonowal and his ministers have no ideas or plans of their own. This government is controlled by the RSS. The State government’s leaders are incompetent.”

Gogoi further alleged that Chief Secretary VK Pipersenia’s six-month extension in service was granted on the directions of the RSS, “Pipersenia has violated the All India Services (Conduct) Rules.”

“During my tenure as CM, Himanta Biswa Sarma had complained to Rahul Gandhi that I had kept a person sympathetic to the RSS as the Chief Secretary of the State. However, now it has been proved that he (Pipersenia) is a RSS sympathiser,” Gogoi pointed, adding, “We will now also demand a briefing by the Chief Secretary to the Congress party.”

Gogoi also criticized the members of the state cabinet, “The Sarbananda, Himanta and (Chandramohan) Patowary combination does not have the competence to run the government. The government is being run by the Chief Secretary.”

Gogoi meanwhile termed Sonowal the weakest Chief Minister in the history of Assam, “The behaviour and actions of Sonowal, Sarma and Patowary resemble those of Badan Barphukan.”
