The meeting of parliamentary board to decide the Chief Minister of Assam is likely to take place virtually. The disagreement between the incumbent chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal and health minister Hemant Biswa Sarma and the ongoing consultation between the all party members are going to finalise the name soon.
Mr Sonowal who has been holding the office for five years is not been endorsed for the next five years but Sarma claims that his name might get selected.
Amid the discussion over the post of deputy chief minister of the Assam for the first time the Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar is set to visit Guwahati as an observer in the state parliamentary meeting.
The decision isn’t simple as Sonowal is a famous leader with a non-questionable style. His underlying foundations in AASU politics make him a natural figure that Assamese slant can relate to. Sarma has demonstrated his fortitude as a sharp political director who has extended BJP’s quality in the north-east.
Not as in 2016, BJP didn’t name the CM face in Assam this time, which has fuelled a discussion on who will take the top post. Sarma has reacted to questions by saying it was for the parliamentary board to choose. He has even gone on record saying that if Modi-Shah settle on a name other than him, he would not have any second thoughts.
Day after winning in the state Mr Sonowal thanked all the Assamees in attaining the majority mark in the state.
Referencing the Sonowal’s governance and developmental schemes, many top leaders have suggested to be wary before shifting the leadership.
Sarma’s chances are not ruled out given that he not just battled thoroughly and assumed a critical part in featuring AIUDF chief Badruddin Ajmal as a benefactor of illegals yet additionally has been the main impetus behind the North-East Democratic Alliance, which was framed by BJP to combine itself around there.
