Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma Challenges Anand Mishra in Buxar Rally
Sarma Hints at Legal Troubles for Mishra Over 'Fake' Encounter Case
Buxar, Bihar - Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma addressed a public rally in Buxar, where he issued a direct challenge to independent candidate and former IPS officer Anand Mishra. Sarma declared, "After the election, I will finally take Anand Mishra to Assam."

Sarma's statement signals potential legal difficulties for Mishra, who is under investigation by a Special Investigation Team (SIT) in Assam for a 'fake' encounter case involving student leader Kirti Kamal Bora. The case is also being reviewed by the Human Rights Commission.

Targeting RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav, Sarma remarked, "I want to tell Lalu Yadav that Hindus have awakened. You will not be able to take reservations from Dalits, Adivasis, and backward classes and give them to Muslims. If you want to give reservations, do it in Pakistan."

During his speech, Sarma predicted a split in the Congress party following the elections, saying, "Congress will split into two factions after the election: one loyal to the Gandhi family and the other opposing them... Rahul Gandhi will lose elections from both factions."

Sarma also highlighted the achievements of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, stating, "In 2019, the people blessed Modi ji with 300 seats, and in 2024, Ram Lalla will enter his grand temple. If the people bless us with 400 seats in 2024, the unfinished work in Mathura and Kashi will be completed."

Anand Mishra, the independent candidate, is contesting from the Buxar seat, where the BJP has fielded Mithilesh Tiwari.
