BJP left embarrassed with Amit's speech
Mistakes after mistakes by Amit Shah in his speech in Dibrugarh rally left state leaders red faced on Friday. But who will tell the BJP president to be correct?
According to grapevine, Shah have worried all senior party leaders in the party a couple of months before the assembly polls.
"State president Sarbananda Sonowal himself was not satisfied with these utterings which would give Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi more ammunition to attack BJP in the electioneering heat and dust," said a senior BJP leader in Dibrugarh.
"It was the duty of the state BJP leaders to brief him properly," said the leader.
Shah, who lacked proper knowledge said in his speech that under Siddhartha Bhattacharya's leadership in 2014, BJP won 7 out of 14 seats in the Lok Sabha polls. BJP fought the Lok Sabha polls under the leadership of Sonowal.
"This was embarrassing for Sonowal also. Bhattacharya got the credit in full of Sonowal," said another BJP leader.
In yet another faux pas, the BJP president slammed the Assam government alleging the absence of 108 services in the state which really exists.
"These suggest how BJP leaders in the distant Delhi lack knowledge," said a Congress leader who did not wished to be named.
"But why the state leaders did not react? They don't have courage to speak to the BJP president," said the Congress leaders.
