North East Assembly Election 2018: Himanta Sarma takes a dig at Rahul Gandhi's political capabilities

Sarma was in the Congress for nearly two decades and a minister in the then Tarun Gogoi-led Congress governments for nearly 15 years before joining the BJP in 2015.

Himanta Biswa Sarma, Assam’s minister of health, education and finance and the BJP's Tripura in-charge, is believed to be the man behind the BJP's turnaround in the Northeast assembly elections 2018. Sharma had even maintained a 100 percent strike rate by the party while the countings in the three states — Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya — were on.
