Former Assam BJP leader and ex-Deputy Speaker of the Assam Legislative Assembly Dilip Kumar Paul has levelled serious accusations against the ruling party in the State.

Following denial of ticket by the BJP to contest in the upcoming Assam Assembly elections, quitting Dilip Kumar Paul has said that syndicate raj is up and running in the State under the very nose of Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal.

Dilip Kumar Paul claimed that the ruling-BJP in Assam is being run by people “involved in various syndicates”.

Paul further said that he was denied ticket by the Assam BJP to contest in the upcoming Assam Assembly elections, as the “people involved in syndicates” they did not want him as an MLA as he refused to take part in it.

“CM Sonowal is helpless before the syndicate raj. In Cachar, if we take a look at the BJP’s candidates list, people who would be useful in smuggling of illegal drugs, weapons etc can be found,” claimed Dilip Kumar Paul.

“The only obstacle for them was me getting the BJP ticket in Silchar, and this is the reason they denied my candidature,” added Paul.
