Nov 25, 2015- Union minister of state for Sports and Youth Affairs and BJP leader Sarbananda Sonowal took charge as the new President of the Assam state Bharatiya Janata Party for the second time on Wednesday. 
Sonowal has also been vested with additional responsibilities of the Chairman of Election Committee. The minister took over charges as the BJP President from Siddhartha Bhattacharya who has been appointed as the National Spokesperson of the party for the North-East region. Speaking on the occasion, Sonowal urged party workers to work for the party with perseverance. Earlier, the Saffron Party registered wins in 7 Lok Sabha constituencies in 2014 of the state under the leadership of Sarbananda Sonowal. During Siddhartha Bhattacharya’s tenure as the state BJP president a number of Congress and Asom Gana Parishad leaders joined the party which included once Congress strongman Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma and senior AGP leader Padma Hazarika. However, the party high command fearing Delhi-Bihar like verdict in the state in the impending 2016 polls decided for a change in leadership. On the other hand, Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma was appointed as Advisor of the Election Committee.
