Slamming the opposition Congress, Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on June 2 claimed that the party may soon lose its principal opposition party position.

“Congress will come down to around 30-35 seats in the 2024 (Lok Sabha) polls,” Sarma said while addressing media persons in Guwahati. He added that the downfall of the Congress is certain.

He also criticised the Congress party’s decision to field “outsiders” for the upcoming Rajya Sabha polls in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh.

CM Himanta Biswa Sarma told the media that the future of Congress is now under threat which is evident from their desperation.

“The party is under constant downfall in the country and its tally will reach a minimum in 2024,” he said.

Sarma also alleged that the leaders close to the Gandhi family had been blackmailing them of quitting the party if not given good positions.
