Senior Congress Spokesperson Romen Chandra Borthakur Quits Party, Plans New Political Venture


Romen Chandra Borthakur, a prominent figure within Assam Pradesh Congress, has announced his departure from the party, signaling a significant setback for the organization ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha election. Borthakur, known for his bold stance, notably contested against Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma in the last two Bidhan Sabha elections, indicating his departure as a significant blow to the party’s prospects.

Sources close to Borthakur suggest that he is poised to launch a new political party under his leadership, with plans to attract members from various political backgrounds. While details remain undisclosed, insiders indicate ongoing discussions with disenchanted leaders and workers from different parties, hinting at a strategic move post-election.

The departure of Borthakur underscores growing discontent within the state Congress, with several leaders and workers defecting in recent times. Borthakur’s desire to contest from the Guwahati Lok Sabha seat, where the party nominated Meera Borthakur instead, further highlights internal discord within the organization.

Previously serving as the state coordinator during the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Borthakur’s exit marks a significant shift in Assam’s political landscape, with implications likely to unfold in the run-up to the elections.
