Assam Assembly Deputy Speaker Aminul Haque Laskar said that former Congress MLA Gautam Roy joining BJP would strengthen the party.

“He (Roy) has realized that the Congress party has withered and staying in it and serving the people won’t be possible,” Laskar added.

“Undoubtedly Roy is an influential leader of this region. His joining will strengthen the BJP. The Congress itself has become bankrupt,” he said.

He also said that political leaders of the stature of a king were there during the Congress regime, but not in the BJP.

“No one in BJP is a king or an emperor and each member is a soldier,” said Laskar.

“Gautam Roy too has to be a committed worker and not a king,” further added the Deputy Speaker.

He said that Roy’s joining BJP will help the party win all the three legislative seats of Hailakandi in 2021 assembly elections.

“The way leaders of Congress party are joining BJP, a time will come when there will be none left to keep it up and running,” said Laskar.

“People would eventually forget that there was a political party by the name of Indian National Congress,” Aminul Haque Laskar further said.
