Assam: Sonai AIUDF MLA’s praise for CM Sarma raises eyebrows


Guwahati: Sonai constituency’s AIUDF MLA, Karimuddin Barbhuiya, publicly praised Chief Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma and Silchar MP, Rajdeep Roy.

The Sonai MLA was attending the foundation stone laying ceremony for the Model Women’s College at Sonai yesterday. Also attending the event was Silchar MP Rajdeep Roy.

It was during this event that Barbhuyan went on to praise CM Sarma and Silchar MP Rajdeep Roy for providing extensive support to the people of the Sonai constituency.

At the public event, Barbhuiya heaped praise on the Himanta Biswa Sarma-led BJP government in Assam.

Meanwhile, the AIUDF MLA’s heaping praise on the BJP government, especially the Chief Minister, has raised eyebrows. Speculations have already started doing the rounds that another opposition MLA may jump ship to the BJP as well.

Barbhuiya dispelled all such rumours and stated that he heaped praise on CM Sarma and MP Rajdeep Roy for helping him carry on work in his constituency despite his being an opposition MLA.

The AIUDF MLA said that yesterday’s event was an event that people from all parties attended. Defending his praise for the BJP government, Barbhuiya said that he had praised the BJP government and Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma out of genuine gratitude and it should not be taken otherwise.
