BJP unhappy over poll prospect

BJP's central leadership is not happy with the party’s poll prospects in Assam. This was the message virtually Amit Shah conveyed when the party president held a crucial meeting in Guwahati on Tuesday.

Convened at the Hotel Rhituraj immediately after his arrival, Shah talked to Siddharth Bhattacharya, Sarbananda, Bijoya Chakrabartty  Rajen Gohain and Ramen Deka who apprised him of the state’s pre poll scenario.

As many as ten central leaders attended the meeting which took place for at least one hour. The meeting is believed to have discussed Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma-led dissidence in Congress amid speculation that he would either float a regional party or join BJP.
