Guwahati News Desk: Mariani MLA Rupjyoti Kurmi who resigns from Assam Congress has joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday.
During his joining ceremony in BJP, Chief Minister of Assam Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma warmly welcomed him in the party.
The former Congress MLA gifted a ‘trishul’ to Assam CM.
Kumri’s sudden resigning from Assam Congress is shocking for the party as he successfully defeated the BJP candidate for Mariani constituency in the recent Assam Assembly Elections.
Earlier, CM Sarma has urged all the opposition leaders to join BJP and work together for the people of Assam.
