The BJP is the only party that is saying different things, Himanta Biswa Sarma said (File)
Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday asserted that Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), Congress, and All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) are identical political entities as they have an ideological alignment of advocating reservations for Muslims.
Earlier today, the Assam Chief Minister arrived at Bhubaneswar Airport in Odisha and received a warm welcome from party workers and leaders.
"If you see the manifesto of BRS, Congress, and AIMIM, they have talked about giving reservations to Muslims. The BJP is the only party that is saying different things, other parties are saying the same thing. Ideologically they (BRS, Congress and AIMIM) are the one and the same," he said in Odisha.
