Assam finance minister Himnata Biswa Sarma

Assam finance minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Wednesday lashed out at former Congress president Rahul Gandhi for terming CAB as an attempt by the BJP government to ethnically cleanse the Northeast.

According to Sarma, Gandhi is an ‘esteemed’ leader who is delusional and dishonest.

In a tweet, Sarma thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and home minister Amit for addressing the ‘concerns’ of the northeast.

He claimed that ‘citizens and civil society’ is supporting the BJP government.

“This ‘esteemed’ leader is a deadly combination of delusion and dishonesty. Thanks to the sensitivity of PM @narendramodi and HM @AmitShah, concerns of Northeast have been addressed,” Sarma tweeted.


“Civil society and citizens are with the Government. Rahul Ji, let’s not politicise issues,” he further added.


Sarma also took a dig at Gandhi by claiming that indigenous communities of Assam have become minorities during the tenure of Congress rule.
