Posted on: 14-11-2015 , 01:48:PM | DY365 Bureau

Nov 14, 2015- In view of the impending 2016 state assembly elections, the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party have stepped up its activities in the state. Once close aides and now arch rivals, Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma and Rockybul Hussain seem to be heading for a straight fight.
This after BJP leader Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma was projected by the Saffron Party to address a Jana Jagriti Sabha to sound the 2016 poll bugle at Panchayat and Rural development minister Rockybul Hussain's home turf, Samaguri on Saturday. In what can be called as a show of its strength the Congress has organized another public meeting in Samaguri late this afternoon. Besides this, the Congress in a bid to secure its stand at Himanta's home constituency Jalukbari, has organized a public meeting. Beneficiaries will be handed over monetary aids, old age pensions in the meeting scheduled to be held late afternoon at Bezera which will be attended by Rockybul Hussain on Saturday. However, this meeting has assumed significance as a tactic of the ruling Congress to halt BJP's rise in the Jalukbari constituency. On the other hand, supporters in huge numbers of both the parties congregated at both the venues of the meetings. Meanwhile, BJP leader and Union Sports and Youth Welfare minister Sarbananda Sonowal, Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma, Guwahati Lok Sabha constituency MP Bijoya Chakravarty and state BJP President Siddhartha Bhattacharya arrived at Samaguri and was given warm welcome at various places by party workers and well wishers. Addressing the gathering at Jalukbari, the Panchayat and Rural development minister said that it is only the Congress who would address the woes of the Jalukbari constituency at a time when Himanta has turned its back towards the constituency. The minister further taking a jibe at the BJP said the Saffron Party was responsible for spiraling prices of essentials. Adding to this, he expressed firmness that the Congress would emerge victorious in the constituency in the impending 2016 assembly polls.
Meanwhile, BJP leader Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma took potshots at Rockybul Hussain stating that rhino killings during Hussain’s tenure as the Forest Minister were the darkest chapter in Assam’s history. Himanta appealed to the state to oust the minister in the coming 2016 assembly elections to avenge the killing 700 rhinos. The BJP leader dared the minister to call public meetings to in order prove one’s might. Himanta while addressing the massive gathering at Samaguri said the state would soon witness a new era when BJP will hold the reigns of the state.
