Interview of Himanta Biswa Sarma

I liked the interview very much. Himanta Da is a God gifted politician not only for Assam but also for the whole country. I am completely convinced that he will work hard to change the face of Assam. BJP did a good job by hiring him to the BJP team. May God bless him!!! From Tarani K. Barman, Gurgaon

Shifting loyalties

•The manner in which the Bharatiya Janata Party leader, Himanta Biswa Sarma, has lashed out at the Assam chief minister, Tarun Gogoi, evokes laughter. Sarma left the Congress to join the BJP. He has criticized the Congress for the lack of development in Assam over the past 15 years. Has he forgotten that he was a minister in that Congress government and held important portfolios for many years? The fact that he switched loyalties and is now denouncing the Congress proves he is an opportunistic politician.

Himanta Biswa Sarma

HBS is the tallest politician Assam has ever produced as of now, his loyalty towards the people of Assam is highly stupendous and beyond any doubt no matter in which party he joins. He will keep on delivering his best for the people of Assam.



Himanta Biswa Sarma switched to BJP.

People are concerned about Himanta Biswa Sarma, switching to BJP!!! This all happened because the Assam congress has been following the blue blood culture. Congress they don't recognize talent they recognize background.
