Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister, who is hitting the headlines these days with his statement, has been ranked 32 amongst the most powerful Indians in the list 100 most powerful leaders conducted by The Indian Express.
”The BJP’s most powerful chief minister in the Northeast, he is seen as the dean of the political circuit there. Known for his controversial remarks, he brings to the table a clout that transcends the party’s core vote base,” the Indian Express said.
Sarma is the 15th Chief Minister of Assam and was sworn in as the Chief Minister of Assam on May 10, 2021, succeeding his colleague Sarbananda Sonowal.
Ever since he was sworn in as Chief Minister, he played a significant role in establishing the state on the path of progress and prosperity.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been ranked No 1 on the list of most powerful leaders.
”Exactly a year ago, the nation was battling the brutal second Covid-19 wave amid looming economic distress, vaccine management was a mess, the farm protests were deadlocked, the BJP had come a cropper in West Bengal — all this seems like history,” The Indian Express said.
”With 183 crore Indians having received at least one vaccine dose, a Budget betting on a CAPEX push, the BJP’s stunning return in four states, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has galvanized his party and government,” it added.
