Who will replace Ranjit Das

Assam BJP leadership are believed to have been preparing a panel of senior MLAs to be finalized for the post of assembly Speaker in lieu of Ranjit Das who is set to take the rein of the state unit.

Senior BJP leaders told Assam Times that they are considering the name of Siddharth Bhattacharya as suitable successor on the floor of the House. Three other names are also under consideration.

But it might take a couple of days for the BJP leadership to take a final decision as Das is out of station.
