Assam Congress Chief Takes Aim at CM Himanta Biswa Sarma Ahead of Phase-2 Polls

Guwahati, 24th April: Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) chief Bhupen Borah launched a scathing attack on Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, accusing him of holding the key to the AIUDF lock. Speaking at an election rally in Nagaon, Borah delivered a blistering critique of the BJP, setting the stage for the imminent second phase of polls scheduled for April 26.

Expressing confidence in garnering significant support from Nagaon residents, Borah asserted that their votes would propel the party’s candidate to Delhi. He outlined a bold vision for the future, aiming to eradicate ‘the lotus’—symbolizing the BJP—from Dispur and symbolically casting it into the Brahmaputra River by 2026.

Turning his attention to recent remarks by CM Himanta Biswa Sarma regarding Muslim voters, Borah alleged that Sarma’s call for Muslim support was met with some applause from the community. However, Borah questioned the rationale behind Muslim voters supporting a leader who had previously made controversial statements likening certain Assamese regions to foreign countries. Using a football analogy, Borah likened a player who fails to score to a goal post, symbolically criticizing Sarma’s leadership.

As the elections draw nearer, Borah observed Sarma’s tactical shift to appeal for votes, acknowledging the democratic power vested in the people. He emphasized the significance of voters’ decisions in shaping not only local leadership but also national governance. Encouraging voters to maintain their aspirations for change, Borah reiterated the goal of removing the BJP from Dispur and replacing it with alternative leadership.
