"I am confident, we will win more than the existing seven seats. I will resign if we win less than seven seats", Gogoi told reporters at a press meet in Guwahati.
On being pointed out that his offer to resign is a serious matter, the Chief Minister said, "Tarun Gogoi is not afraid as we will win. What am I scared of? "
On being asked if Congress would have a poll alliance in the state with the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF), which is a UPA partner, he said, "I won't propose but if AICC does, then I am bound by it".
Accusing the BJP of helping AIUDF during the last elections, Gogoi said, "They have love for (AIUDF chief Badruddin) Ajmal and do not criticize him only. They have secret understanding and are in talks today as well.”
On his son Gaurav Gogoi being nominated for the Kaliabar Lok Sabha seat currently represented by his brother Dip Gogoi the Chief Minister said, "Till now no decision has been taken on the name. Only the media is trying to create a rift in my family but we have an understanding within our family. The relationship between the nephew (Gaurav Gogoi) and uncle (Dip Gogoi) will not be affected by all this", Gogoi asserted.
