Thanking prime minister Narendra Modi, Sarma said, “This is the biggest day in my life, and I so fondly cherish your generous affection. I assure you we shall leave no stone unturned to carry forward your vision of taking Assam, & NE to greater heights.”

Earlier today, outgoing CM Sarbananda Sonowal proposed Sarma’s name as the leader of the BJP legislature party, at the BJP legislature party meeting here.

The oath-taking ceremony will be held at 12 pm tomorrow, which is likely to be held at the Sri Madhabdeb International Auditorium.
