Congress Leader Rakibul Hussain Resigns from Assam Assembly

Guwahati, 11th June: Rakibul Hussain, Congress leader and Lok Sabha MP-elect from Dhubri, tendered his resignation as a member of the Assam assembly on June 11. His resignation, handed over to Speaker Biswajit Daimary in the presence of Deputy Speaker Numal Momin and several Congress leaders, marks a significant transition in Assam’s political landscape.

Hussain’s departure from the assembly was accompanied by a farewell from the Congress Legislature Party (CLP), highlighting his contributions and achievements during his tenure.

However, Hussain’s resignation comes amidst controversy surrounding the voting patterns in the minority-dominated Dhubri Lok Sabha constituency. Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma expressed concern over the turnout, describing it as ‘alarming’ and hinting at potential communalism from the Muslim community.

Sarma’s remarks, made to the media, stirred debate, particularly his assertion regarding the election results in Nagaon and Dhubri constituencies. He emphasized Hussain’s victory margin of over 10 lakh votes and raised questions about the absence of Hindu votes in Dhubri.

Sarma’s comments have sparked discussions about the social fabric and communal dynamics in Assam, raising concerns about the polarization of communities. As Assam navigates through these complex issues, the resignation of Rakibul Hussain adds another layer to the evolving political landscape of the state.
