Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal met with the former CM Tarun Gogoi to inquire about the latter’s health. Gogoi is undergoing treatment at the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH).

Yesterday, Gogoi sent out a public message for the first time since he was re-admitted at GMCH. He thanked his well-wishers for ushering their love and support towards him. “Without blessings from the people and God, it would not have been possible for me to do service to the society. I hope that people of Assam keep showing their love,” said the former chief minister in the message.
