Sarbananda Sonowal, the chief minister designate of Asom, has stated that Indo Bangla border has to be sealed to stop illegal migration of people. This is a national issue and has to be addressed in right earnest, he said soon after getting elected from Bijauli constituency. He said the BJP- AGP combination has clicked and appealed to the masses. ‘After 15 years of Congress’ misrule, people have found a viable alternative in us and we came to their expectations and got a good majority’ he said.
But Mr Sonowal has to make a tight rope walk as a leading partner in the coalition. He is branded as mild and he has to deal with an aggressive partner of Prafulla Kumar Mohanta, himself a former CM.
