GUWAHATI: Senior BJP leader and Assam minister Himanta Biswa Sarma today cast his vote at the Amingaon High School in the third and final phase of the 2021 Assembly election.
Asked about the party’s agenda if it is re-elected to power, Biswa Sarma said, “It is the development of Assam and the safeguard of our culture.”
He further added that the party will seek to fulfill the promises made in its Sankalp Parta manifesto in case it is re-elected to power. The minister also predicted that the BJP-led alliance will win 22 of the 40 Seats that are on offer in the third phase of polling.
