Assam Politics: State Minister Pijush Hazarika Responds to Bhupen Borah’s Criticism of CM

Guwahati, 27th February: State Minister Pijush Hazarika issued a firm response to the comments made by Assam Pradesh Congress Committee chief Bhupen Borah regarding Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma. Hazarika emphasized the principle that all government servants in the state are obligated to serve in any region, regardless of their familial connections or political affiliations.

In a post on X, Hazarika dismissed any notion of special treatment for individuals based on their association with prominent Congress leaders, affirming the government’s stance on equitable distribution of duties among state employees.

Furthermore, Hazarika rebuked Borah for his criticism of CM Sarma, asserting that the state’s civil servants are duty-bound to serve the people across all corners of Assam, without prejudice or favoritism.

Borah’s allegations against CM Sarma, particularly regarding the transfer of his relatives to distant locations, were met with strong opposition from Hazarika, who defended the government’s decision as part of its commitment to impartial governance.

Hazarika concluded by admonishing Borah’s characterization of CM Sarma as a figure of fear, suggesting instead that such rhetoric only serves to sow division and discord.
