Borah also claimed that following an attack on him during the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, he requested the state government for increased security cover, however, the Congress leader has yet to get any response from the administration.

The Pradesh Congress president said that he had requested for increased security after being assaulted during the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in January, but was yet to received it.

Taking to his X handle, Borah wrote, “In a state where writing a poem of dissent, or a scathing tweet, can get you arrested, just imagine an assailant walking about freely, without a care in the world!”

He posted,  “Just see his acrimonious behaviour towards me and my family: He transferred out my brother and sister-in-law, both government servants, to two opposite corners of Assam. Therefore, it is safe to say: fear, thy name is Himanta!”

“Acrimony is a sign of fear! I am certain that if there is one person in Assam that @HimantaBiswa truly fears, it is me. Why? Because his acrimonious behaviour towards me and my family betrays his innermost fears. HBS doesn’t like followers, he likes slaves”, Borah added.

The Congress leader also asserted that Himanta Biswa Sarma can try to buy a few legislators in the state, but he can never buy Bhupen Borah.

Meanwhile, Assam Minister Pijush Hazarika refuted the allegations labelled by Bhupen Borah and mentioned that government employees are entitled to serve in any corner of the state.
