Meanwhile, on June 25, Chief Minister Sarma criticized former Congress President Dev Kant Barooah for his statement during the Emergency in 1975, where he said, “Indira is India & India is Indira.” Sarma argued that Barooah’s remarks were an attempt to conceal Indira Gandhi’s corruption, despite the knowledge that political figures from Assam and other regions of the country were imprisoned during that period.
