Kudos to Honourable Minister Bijoy Krishna Handique for being offered a cabinet berth in UPA government. Assam is a neglected State in every sense. There should have been more ministers in the cabinet from Assam.This is injustice to the people of Assam. The political leaders of Assam should have opposed such a cheap offer. They should have reacted like DMK supremo Karunanidhi.
