He, however, said that if the party decides to fieldhim to contest the poll likely to be held in March-April, hewill honour the decision.
The BJP leader did not disclose the reason for hisunwillingness to fight the election.
”On my birthday on February 1, 2020, I gave a letterto Ranjeet Dass saying that I don’t want to fight the 2021assembly polls. This is not known to my wife or son or anyfamily member till now. I am making it public for the firsttime,” Sarma said.
”However, there was one line (in that letter) whichstated that if the party decides to field me as a candidate, Iwill follow the party’s instruction,” said Sarma, also theconvenor of the North East Democratic Alliance (NEDA), theregional arm of the NDA.
The letter was hand-written and not typed, he said.
