In a jolt to the BJP in Assam, its sitting MP from Tezpur Ram Prasad Sarmah today announced that he has quit the saffron fold and alleged neglect of old workers by “new intruders in the party”
Sarmah said he was resigning from the primary membership of the BJP after serving the RSS and VHP for 15 years and the BJP for 29 years. “I have left BJP today. I really feel pained in my heart for those old BJP workers of Assam who are most neglected in the party by the new intruders in the party,” he said in a Facebook post.
Sarmah’s name was not included in the party’s panel of probable candidate for Tezpur Lok Sabha seat. It only had the name of Assam minister and NEDA convenor Himanta Biswa Sarma.
Meanwhile, a fear stricken BJP surrenders in West Bengal. BJP president of state Dilip Ghosh announces that they don’t have any capable to contest in West Bengal.
He lamented that all the competent and hardworking leaders and Party workers were made to contest for Panchayat and Vidhan Sabha elections, leaving no leaders for Lok Sabha elections
