    BREAKING: Biswajit Daimary re-elected to Rajya Sabha

    He was an MLA in the Assam legislative assembly from 2001-2006 and a Rajya Sabha MP from 2008-2014 and from2014-2020

    GUWAHATI: BJP’s Biswajit Daimary was elected unopposed to the Rajya Sabha from Assam on the last date for withdrawal of nomination papers on Monday. The by-poll was necessitated as Daimary had resigned from his MP post after he switched over from the Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) to the saffron camp.

    In November last year, just ahead of the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) polls, he had left BPF following differences of opinion with BPF chief Hagrama Mohilary over the implementation of the latest Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR) peace accord.

    “I feel blessed that I have been able to represent my community in the Parliament for the third time. Though I left the post as I had resigned from BPF, I feel lucky to be able to serve my people once again,” Daimary said.

    He was an MLA in the Assam legislative assembly from 2001-2006 and a Rajya Sabha MP from 2008-2014 and from2014-2020.
