“Congress is not only short of leaders but also grassroot workers”: Assam CM

Assam Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday said that Congress will cease to exist in the state by 2026, adding that the party has no grassroot workers.

“By 2026, Congress will be no more in Assam. Congress will remain just a party name, like Janata Party, CPI, CPI (M). If you go to the Rajiv Bhawan in Guwahati, then you will see that the rooms are empty, and there is no worker. It will continue just like a party name,” Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma said.

As election fervour grips Assam ahead of the first phase of Lok Sabha elections scheduled for April 19, political activities are at a peak, and on Saturday, Assam Chief Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma, while campaigning for BJP candidate Topon Kumar Gogoi in Titabar of Jorhat No. 14 Lok Sabha seat, addressed journalists, remarking on the state of the Congress party.

Responding to queries about Gaurav Gogoi’s solo campaign as an Independent Alliance candidate, Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “The Congress is now short not only on leaders but also on grassroots workers.”

He further said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Nalbari on April 17.

Regarding criticism of the Orunudoi scheme, Sarma dismissed claims stating, “The public is well aware; labeling it as such only reveals ignorance. Those who term it as ‘jumla’ are themselves purveyors of deceit. This time we will win from Jorhat with a margin of 3 lakh votes. The Congress party is now facing the crisis of workers.”

Responding humorously to Bhupen Bora’s prediction of a change in Assam’s CM, Sarma remarked, “Certainly, if he joins BJP, the CM will indeed change.”

As election dynamics evolve, the political landscape in Assam remains dynamic, with parties strategizing vigorously for electoral success.

There are a total of 14 parliamentary constituencies in Assam. Elections for the 14 Lok Sabha constituencies in Assam will take place in three phases on April 19, April 26 and May 7.
