Sanjay Kumar Deb, senior BJP leader of Margherita, on Friday formally resigned from the primary membership of BJP. He said, “In the year 1996 I joined BJP because I thought that only the BJP could bring change in the society and the whole country but I was proved wrong today. BJP State leaders have no ideology and principles and today there is no difference between the BJP and the Congress party. The BJP leaders have given tickets to corrupt people, murderers, thieves and SULFA members to contest in the forthcoming assembly election.”
Meanwhile, the newly- floated political party Trinomool BJP has chosen Lakheswar Moran to contest from 124 No Margherita LAC and Sanjay Kumar Deb may contest from 122 No Tinsukia LAC, said a source.
