Sarma, a former Congressman who joined the BJP in 2015, was a key figure in the establishment of the BJP government in 2016. He has established himself as one of the party’s most visible figures in the state and the entire North East country. He also serves as the convener of the North-East Democratic Alliance (NEDA) and is widely regarded as the party’s political brain in the region.
According to a party source, Sarma went to great lengths to secure the Chief Ministership because he feels he not only merits but also deserved it. In 2016, Sonowal, on the other hand, led the BJP to its first win in Assam and comfortably led the state government for five years. He has the RSS’s blessing as well.
