Himanta Biswa Sarma is the man that the BJP hopes will win it more than 20 seats in a region where it once had zero presence. In 2014, the BJP won eight of Northeast's 25 Lok Sabha seats, all of which vote in the first three rounds of the national election starting Thursday. Speaking to NDTV before taking off from Dibrugarh in a private plane, the 50-year-old former Assam minister said a 21-seat haul would make him "extremely happy" -- but he is actually confident of 19.
