Congress leader Himanta Biswa Sarma to join BJP


New Delhi: Congress leader and former Assam Health and Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday said that he would be joining the Bharatiya Janata Party shortly.

“Today, I along with the BJP state president, met National president of BJP Amit Shah. We have discussed some political situation as well as the prevailing flood situation and some long term problems of Assam. We have expressed our willingness to walk under a strong leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It has been decided in due course of time, we will join BJP,” Sarma told the media.

He insisted that in the coming two-three days he would be joining the BJP.

Last month, Sarma had resigned from Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi’s cabinet, alleging that the latter had no concrete policy to strengthen the party in Assam.
