Chief minister Tarun Gogoi on Monday stopped short of attacking his former ministerial colleague Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma but left none in doubt about his feelings for his one-time "blue-eyed boy"-turned bête noire a day after Sarma announced his decision to join the BJP.
Addressing a news conference in Dispur,Tarun Gogoi admitted: "He was my blue-eyed boy. I backed him despite reservations from senior colleagues. Even Delhi used to criticise me. He was efficient and keen to learn. I trusted him blindly. I signed anything he gave me. I also helped him set up his TV channel. I do not know why he is unhappy with me. Do not know why he left. We have been with the Congress even when it was passing through a difficult phase".
