The BJP central leadership has summoned Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma to Delhi on Friday to discuss the leadership of the next government in Assam. Both state leaders have reached Delhi. According to the news agency ANI, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma have reached the house of BJP President JP Nadda directly from the airport. He is in talks with JP Nadda here. After meeting Nadda, Union Minister Amit Shah will also hold a meeting with BJP General Secretary BL Santosh and other leaders. The Bharatiya Janata Party-led coalition has won the assembly elections in Assam.
Hemant Biswa Sarma’s highest claim
In fact, the BJP has returned to power for the second time in Assam, but the party did not forward the current Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal in the election this time. The party reposed more trust in state minister Hemant Biswa Sarma. During the election, Hemant Biswa Sarma had the highest claim. In such a situation, the biggest challenge before the party is to hand over the command of the state. The name of the Chief Minister has not yet been agreed in the party. Some leaders of the party and the organization want to see Sarbananda Sonowal as the chief minister, but Hemant Biswa Sarma’s name has reached the central leadership. At the same time, former Congress Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi surprised everyone by saying that the BJP’s central leadership would hand over the command to Ranjan Gogoi in Assam, but his claim was rejected by the BJP leaders outright.
