Sarbananda Sonowal Resigns As Assam Chief Minister

Dispur: Sarbananda Sonowal on Sunday submitted his resignation as Assam Chief Minister before Governor Jagdish Chandra Mukhi at Raj Bhawan.

BJP’s legislative party in Assam is yet to pronounce its decision on the state’s next chief minister, a week after the saffron party and its allies got the mandate to form government there for the second consecutive term.

Both Sonowal and Himanta Biswa Sarma are frontrunners for the top seat in the north-eastern state.

According to sources in the party, Sarma’s name will be proposed by incumbent Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal in a meeting of the newly-elected MLAs today.
