New Delhi, March 5 : The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is likely to field Assam Minister and senior party leader, Himanta Biswa Sarma, in the upcoming Assembly polls.
The BJP state leadership recommended Sarma’s name to the Central Election Committee (CEC) for the party nomination. Assam BJP Chief, Ranjeet Kumar Dass, said Sarma would contest the upcoming state Assembly polls.
According to Dass, the BJP Assam unit has recommended Sarma’s name along with a list of other probable candidates to the party’s central leadership.
“We have sent Sarma’s name to the Parliamentary Board for the party candidature. If the party decides to field Sarma in the upcoming polls then he will contest,” Dass said.
Dass added, “Once you are a party worker, whatever decision the party takes, you have to follow. In 2019, he (Sarma) decided to contest the Lok Sabha polls but the party decided against his wish and he accepted the decision.” “The party does not work on individual wishes, whether it is about contesting elections or not,” he added.
