Former Tezpur Lok Sabha MP, Ram Prasad Sarmah is likely to join the Congress. As per party insiders, he is camping in Delhi for the last three days.
Sarmah had resigned from the primary membership of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in March 2019. In a Facebook post, the politician wrote that he felt insulted when his name did not find a place in the shortlisted panel of candidates for the Lok Sabha elections.
Earlier there were reports of the former BJP leader joining the Nitish Kumar led Janata Dal (United).
Sarmah has earlier said that the old BJP workers of Assam, who have been toiling for decades, are the most ‘neglected and ill-treated’ in the BJP by the ‘new intruders’ in the party.
