 Biswadev Sarma, a ex-Minister and a Congress high-up. They held an open convention at Nowgong a month ago and for this they were able to obtain messages from Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed, Union Food Minister, and Moinul Haque Chaudhury, former Central Minister, The situation faced by S C Sinha is similar to that faced in 1970 and 1971 by the-then chief minister, M M Chaudhury, now Governor of Punjab. Sinha has the support of the Assembly Congress party but cracks have appeared in the party organisation. Many of his old comrades are dissatisfied with the way the government is functioning.
