NEW DELHI/GUWAHATI, Nov 8: Shocked over the Bihar poll debacle, the Bharatiya Jata Party (BJP) is all set to go with a new alignment in the coming Assembly elections in Assam.
"The Bihar result really needs a serious introspection. It has really surprised us, but this is unlikely to have its impact in the coming Assembly elections in other states," BJP's in-charge for Assam Mahendra Singh told The Sentinel.
"We will introspect over the poll result in Bihar so that the reason behind our defeat could be identified," said Singh.
Meanwhile, the Atal Behari Vajpayee Bhavan in Guwahati wore a deserted look with no party leaders attending office today. State BJP spokesperson Rupam Goswami said: "The Bihar poll debacle should be a lesson for Assam committee of the party. We need to give up the attitude of overconfidence and work wholeheartedly. In Bihar the BJP had no face. The tiol leaders of the party should project an all-acceptable face for Assam, and we want the tiol leaders of the party should hold a discussion with the state leaders in this regard."
Meanwhile, a source in the party today said that Union Minister of Sports and Youth Welfare Sarbanda Sonowal would take the post of the State president of the party soon. The term of Siddhartha Bhattacharyya expired on October 29, 2015.
