Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, speaking at a political rally in Kanakagiri, Karnataka, stated that the BJP must come to power in the region. He also expressed his views on the Babri Masjid controversy, saying that the people of India no longer needed the mosque and instead wanted the Ram Janmabhoomi temple.
Sarma also took a jab at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, accusing him of trying to defame India while in London. The Assam CM went on to say that Gandhi would never be able to become the Prime Minister of India as long as Modi ji was in power.
The comments made by Sarma have drawn criticism from various political parties and groups. The opposition parties have accused him of trying to stir up communal tensions and incite hatred towards certain religious communities.
The statement also comes at a time when the Babri Masjid demolition case is still ongoing in the Indian courts. The incident, which occurred in 1992, led to widespread violence and tensions between Hindus and Muslims in the country. The issue has remained a contentious topic in Indian politics and society for several decades.
It remains to be seen how Sarma’s comments will impact the upcoming elections in the region and whether they will have any long-term consequences on the already fragile communal fabric of India.
