“This is more than a shame to have heard it from the mouth of a BJP MP. In fact, Tasa has no study. He is unqualified. He needs to be arrested,” said Tarulata Gogoi, a Congress leader

Bhadreswar Bakti, a tea tribe leader in Sivasagar said,” Tasa can speak anything since he has lost his mental balance. He needs treatment. 

“Since I am not a Congress leader or worker, the issue should not be politicized. Let him face the music for his irresponsible comment.” 

Tasa made the comment as he was addressing a public rally in Sonari on Saturday in presence of chief minister Sarbanabda Sonowal.
