Assam Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament Ajit Kumar Bhuyan stoked controversy by saying that there is no issue with All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) chief Maulana Badaruddin Ajmal becoming the chief minister of Assam.
Comparing Ajmal with with two Assamese litterateurs Syed Abdul Malik and Imran Shah, Bhuyan said that if these litterateurs can become presidents of Asom Sahitya Sabha, then why can’t Ajmal become chief minister of Assam.

Bhuyan addressing a public rally also said that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) talks no other issues than Badaruddin Ajmal.
Bhuyan further added that if 1951 is taken as the cut-off year for detection of foreigners, then Badruddin Ajmal will not be identified as a foreigner and thus he can become the chief minister of Assam.
