"Couldn't reconcile myself to Rahul Gandhi's policies hence I defected though in my heart I don't call myself a defector”, says Himanta Biswa Sarma, a prominent politician from Assam who now has joined the BJP from the Congress. He says that the young Assamese have aspirations too and that has forced them to migrate and also agrees that the demographic change has shaken Assam's foundation. Being extremely critical of Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, he says, "Rahul acts like God and doesn't know how to resolve critical issues within state leaderships." Mr Sarma goes on to say that Rahul Gandhi treats any fresher to politics with suspicion and that anyone who supports him will be disillusioned. Reminiscing his days with the Congress he ends the conversation saying that no matter what party one is with, they have to perform.
