Nobody demanding separate statehood in Assam: Himanta Biswa Sarma

Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Wednesday said nobody is demanding separate statehood in Assam.


Speaking to reporters, Sarma said, “Assam’s Barak Valley and Karbi Anglong – they are in a different geographical situation. So one plus one is not two. However, there is a totally different situation in Barak Valley, different situation in Brahmaputra Valley so we should not, I mean in Assam now nobody demands States,”


“If Karbi Anglong also demands, they are demanding State within Assam and not outside Assam. I think that phase is over now in Assam,” he added.
