Guwahati: Assam health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma is planning to write a book on his experience during the COVID 19 pandemic situation. The minister himself revealed it during a press conference on Saturday.
He said that he was waiting for the pandemic to settle down in the later part of the year when he may write a book about his experience.
“Let the COVID situation come down in November-December and I will write a book then. I have witnessed the dedication of our doctors and health workers in these trying times and experience everything from a close distance,” Sarma said.
The minister has also written several books already.
He also said that he was amazed to find people were making music videos and writing poems dedicating to him.
“Have you ever seen something like that?” he smiled.
In the same breath, he also took the opportunity to hit the Opposition parties. He said that no opposition party in the state has worked to help the government. “They (the opposition leaders) did not even make an appeal to the public to donate plasma. They never did anything to aware the people even. They have no moral right to say anything on this situation,” the minister alleged.
Sarma added, “I have been working and I know my works will fetch blessings for me.”
He also refuted the allegations of mismanagement of government funds. “All the allegations are baseless and unfounded.”
