Saikia added that it was the Congress that helped Bora shape his political career and it was only unfair on his part to leave the party, particularly at a time when it needs veteran leaders to stay united.

It may be recalled that moments after news of Ripun Bora’s resignation surfaced, Assam Pradesh Congress Committee President Bhupen Borah while speaking exclusively to Northeast Live admitted that more leaders are set to desert the Congress.

Ripun Bora, In his resignation letter addressed to AICC president Sonia Gandhi, cited infighting within the Assam Congress as the primary reason for his desertion.
