Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma

After long-drawn speculation on who would lead the new government in Assam, BJP’s legislature party on Sunday declared Himanta Biswa Sarma would succeed Sarbananda Sonowal as the next chief minister.

Succeeding Sonowal, the BJP’s Himanta Biswa Sarma on Monday was sworn in as the 15th Chief Minister of Assam, along with 13 members of his cabinet in the presence of Governor Jagdish Mukhi, BJP President JP Nadda and other leaders. Urkhao Gwra Brahma, the chief of BJP ally United People’s Party Liberal, also took oath amid Covid restrictions at Srimanta Sankaradeva Kalakshetra in Guwahati.

According to party sources, Sarma’s name was proposed by Sonowal

What did PM Modi tweet?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated Sarma and said he was confident this team will add momentum to the development journey of Assam.

In another tweet, PM Modi thanked Sonowal for his contribution towards Assam’s progress and strengthening the party in the state. He said Sonowal was at the helm of a pro-people and pro-development administration over the last five years. His contribution towards Assam’s progress and strengthening the party in the state is immense.

Why was Himanta Biswa Sarma chosen to be Assam CM ?

Sarma is no stranger to controversies. In the run-up to the elections, he was criticised for his polarising comments, in which he often targeted the Bengali-origin Muslim community of the state, especially perfume baron and MP Badruddin Ajmal, who leads the AIUDF, a party known for its strong base among minorities and a Congress ally.

In April, the Election Commission had banned Sarma from campaigning for 48 hours for threatening to put Hagrama Mohilary, the chief of the Bodoland People’s Front (BPF), another Congress ally, behind bars by filing a case with the NIA.

Soon after the EC relaxed the ban, Sarma resumed his campaigning duties. There have also been allegations of corruption against Sarma in the Saradha and Louis Berger scams.

Sarma, BJP’s trouble-shooter and the go-to man in the Northeast, was instrumental in the party’s two consecutive victories. Sarma enjoys the support of a majority of BJP legislators besides its allies, Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and the tribal United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL).

Had the BJP top brass allowed Sonowal to continue as CM, it could have sparked an internal feud in the party’s Assam unit, something Modi-Shah cannot afford after the West Bengal rout.

How did the BJP do in the polls?

In the results announced for the 126-member Assam Assembly on May 2, the BJP won 60 seats while its alliance partners AGP got 9 seats and UPPL 6. In Assam, the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) has secured 75 seats while the ‘grand alliance’ led by the Congress bagged 50.

In the 2016 Assembly polls, the BJP had projected Sonowal as its chief ministerial candidate and won, forming its first government in the northeast. This time, the party had maintained that it would decide who would be the next chief minister after the elections. Sarma’s defection to the BJP from the Congress put paid to the grand old party’s chances even with late Tarun Gogoi leading it.

The Omaxe Society of UP’s Noida recently came into the limelight when a video went viral where Politician Shrikant Tyagi had an altercation with another resident. Subsequently, after the video went viral, Tyagi was arrested for abusing and pushing a woman on camera.

After his arrest, the Noida authorities rolled in with bulldozers to demolish the illegal structures constructed on the encroached land. The residents of the society had welcomed the decision taken by the authorities as many of them came in support of the bulldozer action taken by the government on Shrikanth Tyagi’s residence.

However, in a sudden turn of events, the residents of the Omaxe society, who were celebrating the bulldozer action, became victims of it themselves as the municipal corporation of Noida rolled into the society to demolish any illegal construction done to it.

The probe by the Noida authority was influenced by Shrikant Tyagi’s wife, who alleged that only her family was subjected to actions in the encroachment issue, whereas, other residents who had done the same are not subjected to the same punishment.

The residents of the Omaxe society were given a 48-hour notice, however, some reports claim that some residents were not given any notice and this action by the authorities came as a surprise to them. The residents of the society can be seen protesting outside the gate of their society, imploring the authorities to not carry out these actions.

Despite incessant impeding and imploring by the residents, the authorities carried out demolition on the encroached land of the residents.

The Supreme court of India recently cautioned and instructed the UP to strictly adhere to due process before carrying out the removal of unauthorized structures.

Dr. Gautam took to his Facebook handle and posted a status writing that instead of fasting or 9 days in Navratri, Hindu women should rather read Indian Constitution and Hindu Code Bill these 9 days so as to avoid the slavery and crimes that they face.

This FB post gathered a lot of attention on social media followed by several students of the same college filling complaint against the guest lecturer about it being an anti-Hindu message. And the incident ended by MGKV removing the guest lecturer “with immediate effect” due to the resentment caused among students and the environment of the varsity being affected.
