The command of Assam has been taken over by BJP leader and convenor of Northeast Democratic Alliance, Himanta Biswa Sarma today. Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi administered the oath of office to Himanta Biswa Sarma as Chief Minister of the state and confidentiality at Srimanta Sankardev Kalakshetra. Apart from Himanta Biswa Sarma, other ministers have also taken the oath.

Several senior leaders including BJP national president JP Nadda have also participated in Chief Minister Sarma’s swearing-in program. Sarma unanimously thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP President JP Nadda and former Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and other party leaders after being elected as the leader of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Legislature Party.

 

After taking oath as the new Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma has spoken on an important issue. He first urged ULFA commander-in-chief Paresh Barua to hold peace talks. However, the challenge before Chief Minister Sarma is to overcome the corona in the state. Cases of corona infection in Assam are increasing rapidly. In such a situation, Chief Minister Sarma will have to take important decisions to avoid the Corona infection.

 

It goes on to say that Himanta Biswa Sarma left Congress in 2014 after differences with Tarun Gogoi. After that he has contributed significantly in strengthening the BJP in the Northeast. Sarma led the party in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in the Northeast, which benefited the BJP alliance. This further increased the confidence of the party’s central leadership on Sarma.
