Assam: In his first political rally in Assam, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal slammed Himanta Biswa Sarma for his warning on a remark made inside the Delhi Assembly, saying open threats do not befit a Chief Minister. He also questioned Mr Sarma’s leadership, claiming that in the last seven years he has only engaged in “dirty politics.” The Assam Chief Minister had challenged Mr Kejriwal to repeat his claim that he is being investigated in other states.

I heard Himanta Biswa Sarma speak. He was threatening me, saying that if he came, he would be imprisoned. Assamese people are not like that; they are welcoming. They do not issue threats. Himanta Biswa Sarma should study Assamese culture and tradition, according to the Aam Aadmi Party Convenor.

Mr Sarma had called Mr Kejriwal a coward “hiding behind the veil of immunity in the Delhi assembly and uttering white lies” ahead of his visit to Assam for his party’s mega conclave.

 

“Let him say there’s a corruption case pending against me outside the assembly premises, and I’ll sue him like I did with his colleague Manish Sisodia,” Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal told reporters in Guwahati.

In July, Mr Sarma filed a defamation suit after Manish Sisodia claimed in a press conference that the Assam government had given contracts to his wife’s firms and his son’s business partner to supply Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits at market rates during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
