Congress Mariani MLA from Mariani, Rupjyoti Kurmi, submits resignation to Assembly Speaker Biswajit Daimary.
Kurmi was accompanied by two BJP MLAs, minister Pijush Hazarika and Jayanta Malla Baruah. Hazarika and Baruah were earlier in Congress with Kurmi.
Speaking to the media Rupjyoti Kurmi said, “I have submitted my resignation to Assembly speaker Biswajit Daimary and will join BJP on Monday in presence of CM Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma”
Besides that, Kurmi also said, “I’m leaving Congress as High Command in Delhi and Guwahati leaders are just giving priority to elderly leaders only. We’d told them Congress has a good chance of coming to power this time and we shouldn’t forge an alliance with AIUDF as it would be a big mistake. Rahul Gandhi is failure to give a good leadership.”.
Two days back, the Congress MLA reportedly had a confidential meeting with the Assam BJP leadership.
However, recently Kurmi was chosen as the secretary of the Congress Legislature Party but he refused to accept the post.
