‘Congress leaders ate biscuits from same plate as Rahul Gandhi’s pet dog’: Himanta Biswa

Guwahati: Assam's newly elected CM Himanta Biswa Sarma was once a Congress chief, but with his joining the BJP in 2015, the political picture of the entire North-East changed and the Congress was cleared from all the states there. Now, the situation is that in all the eight States of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Nagaland, Meghalaya, Tripura, Mizoram and Sikkim in the North-East, there is a BJP coalition government here. Now Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma has shared an anecdote about how he was disillusioned with the Congress. Sarma narrated the story on a show on a private news channel.

CM Sarma said that during that time, there was a brainstorming session on defeating the BJP in the upcoming assembly elections in Assam. He said Rahul Gandhi was not interested in the meeting during the entire conversation and was playing with his dog. Himanta Biswa Sarma further said, "Tea and coffee were brought to the leaders present during the meeting. Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi's dog went to the table and took a biscuit from the plate and started eating. Then Rahul Gandhi looked at me and smiled. I wondered why he was doing it when he saw me?" In fact, Himanta was carrying a cup of tea in his hand and waiting for Rahul Gandhi to order another plate instead of the plate that was tied by the dog. He waited for 5 minutes, but then saw veteran leaders like former CM Tarun Gogoi and CP Joshi picking up biscuits from the same plate.

Sarma said he did not always go to meet Rahul Gandhi but that day he realized that all this was normal for him. He felt that this would have happened in all Rahul Gandhi meetings. He said, "That same day I realized that enough is enough, now I can't live with this person. But, I also thank him. If I hold this post today, the credit goes to that meeting and the fact that Rahul Gandhi did not like me being in the Congress." Sarma worked for the Congress for 22 years.
