Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Friday said that he doesn’t know if Maharashtra legislators are camping in his state Assam.
Stating that legislators from other states can come and stay in Assam, Sarma outrightedly rejected charges of aiding a coup against Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray by hosting rebel MLAs at a five-star hotel in Guwahati. He reiterated he can’t stop anyone from visiting Assam. He said, "I don’t know if rebel MLAs are staying in Assam."
Sarma while speaking to reporters on Thursday had said, "40 people came to Assam. This is good. We are happy if more people come. We hardly have any tourists during this time. I will meet my MLA friends if I find time today or tomorrow."
