GUWAHATI | March 24, 2019:
Sitting BJP lawmaker from Assam's Tezpur, Ram Prasad Sarmah, who has been dropped for the 2019 polls, on Saturday said that he will float a new party which will bring in all the old and "neglected" BJP leaders.
The BJP has replaced Sarmah with state minister Pallab Lochan Das.
In a address to the media, Sarmah said that he is not a "chowkidar" but an employee of the people. "There is no value and place for old leaders of the party in Assam. All the neglected leaders will be brought together in the new party," he said.
