The buzz in the air back then was – BJP government in the state will bust all the corrupt ones. 8 months later, November 14, 2018, veteran BJP leader and former union minister Kabindra Purkayastha ceremoniously inducts Assam Pradesh Congress Committee secretary and former personal secretary of Gautam Roy – the same Gautam Gupta in BJP.
Barak Bulletin was the first one to report that Gautam Gupta along with 100 others were set to join BJP before Panchayat polls. Today, as planned, in Lalamukh tea estate’s community hall members from AIUDF, Congress and other political alliances switched sides and joined BJP. Former MLA of South Karimganj Mishon Ranjan Das, district BJP president Subrat Nath along with Purkayastha was inducting new members in the party by wearing them a saffron scarf.
Das trough his speech motivated newly inducted members to go all out and fetch great results in the upcoming Panchayat Polls. He reminded them all that just a few months after Panchayat polls the Lok Sabha elections will take place. He urged all to unite and win the Karimganj Lok Sabha seat and present it as a gift to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Kabindra Purkayastha spoke about the history of BJP and reminded the gathering about Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s contribution and dream. BJP does not have a single MLA in Hailakandi district and Purkayastha did not miss the opportunity to urge newly inducted members. He said it is time to write a new chapter in Hailakandi while welcoming the new members in BJP.
Gautam Gupta took oath to follow party principles and devote himself to BJP’s ideology.
