Lawmaker dubs himself a 'positive terrorist'

Bokakha: A former militant leader and now lawmaker in Assam for two terms, Jiten Gogoi, who calls himself a terrorist, is eyeing a hat trick in assembly elections.

"The word terror or terrorist should be re-defined. I am a terrorist, but with a positive connotation as I am always there with my people in their time of need fast and aggressive like terrorists," Gogoi told IANS, as villagers circled him near the Kaziranga National Park in eastern Assam.

A former member of the outlawed United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA), Gogoi made his political foray as an independent in 1996 from Bokakhat but lost to a Congress candidate. He won in 2001 and 2006 as an independent.

Gogoi's secret of winning the two elections is simple. "People love me because I care for them in their times of need".
