Sonowal keeps mum on Himanta

Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal’s stoic silence seems to have heightened utter doubt and confusion over BJP’s position on Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma whose comment on Hindu refugees from the neighbouring countries ran into a hail of protest. According to sources, Sonowal personally is not prepared to buy his cabinet colleague’s comment on the controversial issue. “Sonowal only is waiting and watching. But it would put him in dire trouble even in Dispur. Sonowal would react only after tlkin to the top BJP leaders in New Delhi,” said a senior BJP leader. On the other hand, Sonowal who addressed a press conference in Dispur on Friday refused to make any comment on Dr Sarma who is camping in New Delhi.
