Amid the ongoing uncertainty over the selection of the next chief minister of Assam, incumbent CM Sarbananda Sonowal and his colleague Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma left for New Delhi in a chartered flight this morning to report before the BJP’s central parliamentary board at 10:30am. Both the CM aspirants will meet BJP president JP Nadda followed by another meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The Central Parliamentary Board will take the final call on the next Chief Minister of Assam after meeting them personally.

Both left for Delhi in the same aircraft.

Both Mr Sonowal and Mr Sarma have been asked to reach Delhi by 10 am today.

BJP sources have added that the party wants to discuss the issue face to face with both the leaders before taking a final call.

It is expected that the name of the Chief Ministers of Assam will be announced by the afternoon so that a low key swearing in ceremony can be organized on Sunday next.
