‘Unfair to blame me for lack of safe environment within Congress’ :Himanta Sarma

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday said that the state police action against Indian Youth Congress president Srinivas BV is in accordance with the law and that it is “unfair to blame” him for the “lack of a safe environment within the Congress party for female workers”.

The remarks of the Assam Chief Minister came after Assam Police left for Karnataka following a case registered on the complaint filed by Angkita Dutta, former President of Assam Youth Congress against Srinivas BV.

Notably, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala, in a press conference in Karnataka on Sunday, slammed Sarma on the police action against Srinivas and said, “The turncoat CM of Assam who is trying to outbid Amit Shah to his post has now become infamous for this antics to stay in news…We reject this propaganda completely. Sometimes he wants to arrest Pawan Khera, sometimes he wants to arrest BV Srinivas.

Retorting to the remarks without naming the Congress leader, Himanta Sarma shared the police notice to Srinivas dated April 23 on Twitter and asked the grand old party to advise the accused to “cooperate with legal process”.
