Guwahati: The key architect of BJP’s campaign Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday said it was a historic win for the BJP in Assam, full of hopes and aspirations of the people.
Talking to this newspaper here, Mr Sarma said, “This victory of BJP has been historic. It is more significant and sweet to me as it has come just after I was insulted and humiliated in the Congress party by its vice-president Rahul Gandhi and chief minister Tarun Gogoi.” He said the people of Assam has also rejected the vision of Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi in its verdict.
Mr Sarma, however, clarified that this election result has bigger message that Assam wanted to grow with the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “I sincerely thank the people of Assam for expressing their faith in the leadership of BJP.
“I would also like to reiterate that each and every promise that BJP has given in its vision document will be implemented,” said Mr Sarma adding that this victory may have not been possible without the alliance of BJP with BPF, AGP and other like minded forces.
Meanwhile, Sarma told a TV channel that when a fight broke out in a meeting of Assam Congress leaders that he had called, party vice-president Rahul Gandhi seemed oblivious and more interested in his dog.
