GUWAHATI: Chief ministerial aspirant duo, Sarbananda Sonowal and Himanta Biswa Sarma left for New Delhi in a chartered flight this morning to report before the BJP’s central parliamentary board at 10 am.

The Central Parliamentary Board wants to take the final call on the next chief minister of Assam after meeting them personally.

The high command has not yet been able to take a final decision in this regard.
