Himanta Biswa Sarma CM, born in Jorhat, Assam (Assam), is now going to be the new Chief Minister of Assam. Sarma, who once started his political career with the Congress, is now wearing saffron in Assam and watering Kamal. Himanta Biswa Sarma is also called Chanakya of BJP’s Northeast. Because these are the same leaders, because of which the BJP has reached the harem from the floor in Assam. Today, the BJP decided in its Legislature Party meeting that was held in Disampur that the next Chief Minister of Assam would be Hanuman Himanta Biswa Sarma of BJP.
Today, Sarbananda Sonowal has submitted his resignation to Governor Jagdish Mukhi. BJP is the first non-Congress party in Assam to form a government in Assam for the second time in a row. Himant Biswa Sarma was a big contributor to this victory of BJP, if we say so, it will not be wrong. Himant Biswa Sarma’s track record is such that this time it was believed to be his Chief Minister. There was a desire to become Chief Minister that Himanta Biswa Sarma had said goodbye to the Congress Party in 2015.
Sarma, who led BJP to 26 to 86 seats
Before 2016, Assam was a state where the BJP government was never formed. You can also say that the BJP was fighting for its existence in this state. But when Himanta Biswa Sarma left the Congress and joined the BJP in 2015, the Bharatiya Janata Party also got a big face and a capable strategist for the Northeast. The result of Himanta Biswa Sarma’s hard work was that the BJP, which had only 26 seats in the 2011 election, reached 86 seats in the 2016 assembly elections. Whereas the Congress party which had 78 seats in 2011, Himanta Biswa came to 26 seats as soon as Sarma left. Himanta Biswa Sarma is currently one of those BJP leaders who are the poster boys of the Hindutva issue of the BJP in the Northeast, such as Yogi Adityanath in UP. Glimpses of this form of Himanta Biswa Sarma were seen in the 2021 assembly elections when he fiercely attacked Ajmal Badruddin and the intruders.
Himanta, who saved BJP from the CAA-like issue in Assam
BJP’s victory in Assam was not as easy as it is seen today. In fact, there was a lot of ruckus in the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) before the elections in Assam. The agitation became so fierce that people felt that this time the BJP will lose in Assam. But at the right time Himanta Biswa Sarma turned the whole issue towards Hindu-Muslim and intruders. That’s why Himanta Biswa Sarma started targeting the AIUDF Chief just two to three months before the election.
Look at these statements of Himanta Biswa Sarma, who gave the Assam election a new issue.
‘I am extremist’
Himanta Biswa Sarma recently said, “I am an extremist to protect Indian and Assamese culture on this earth. If someone has given me this title, then please extend my gratitude and thanks to those people. “
At an Assam rally, Sarma said, “Ajmal (AIUDF chief Badruddin Ajmal), the only goal of Congress and regional parties is how to bring Babur’s rule in Assam. But as long as Hanuman of BJP is here, we will not let this happen. We will move forward on the ideals of Ram. “
‘Rahul Gandhi takes advice from those who speak Arabic’
On Rahul Gandhi’s rally, Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “Rahul Gandhi is a busy man and he has important tasks like running the peasant movement. He is taking advice from Arabic speaking people and that’s why things have gone in the wrong direction. “
Now understand the vote bank affected by these statements
The Hindu population in Assam is 61 percent. While the Muslim population is 34 percent. Himanta Biswa Sarma knew that if he had to regain the throne in Assam, all these Hindu voters would have to be kept in his court. At the same time, talking about 34 percent Muslim, AIUDF Ajmal Badruddin has a good influence on him and the Congress’s fight with him together could prove fatal for the BJP. In view of this mathematics, Himanta Biswa Sarma made such statements to show the Hindu voters in his court that they showed in the election results.
Himanta Biswa Sarma is a popular face from Sarbananda Sonowal in the Northeast
The influence of Himanta Biswa Sarma is not only in Assam, but in all the northeastern states adjoining it. Due to his stay in the Congress for decades, he also has a hold in the Northeast Congress. This time, according to his popularity with the public, he won this time from the Jhalukbari assembly seat. Hemant Biswa Sarma has been winning this seat since 2001. BJP is well aware that if it has to maintain itself in the Northeast, then Himant Biswa Sarma will have to take recourse. With this, by making Himanta Biswa Sarma the Chief Minister, the BJP has given this message to all those leaders who have come to BJP leaving other parties, that there will be no discrimination against them.
