Uncertainty over joining date

Much to their utter disappoint, BJP central leadership has asked nine sitting Congress MLAs to contact state president Siddharth Bhattacharya who was not aware of the political development.

According to sources, Bhattacharya received no information either from Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma who took the lead or from the central leadership.

Dr Sarma , however, justified that since they have not joined the party and that they met Amit Shah to support the Narendra Modi government, that’s why, Bhattacharya was absent from the scene.

Talking to Assam Times, Dr Sarma said that the nine sitting Congress MLAs would join the party at a convenient date in consultation with Bhattacharya. The Congress MLAs include Jayanta Malla Baruah, Piyush Hazarika, Kripanath Malla, Abu Taher Bepari, Bolin Chetia, Rajen Borthakur, Monsingh Rongpi along with two others.
