    WATCH: Himanta Biswa Sarma pours his heart out in a poem for Assam

    GUWAHATI: Amidst the hustle and bustle of poll campaigns and mudslinging of political parties on each other, Assam’s senior cabinet minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has something new to do.

    Apart from crisscrossing the entire state and participating in public rallies, the minister has now come up with a poem in which he described how the idea of Assam and India occupies his heart and mind. The poem titled-‘Mur Pranot Axomi Aai, Mur Monot Bharati Aai’ saluting the spirit of Assamese people was also recited by the minister on a few occasions during the ongoing poll campaigns.

    Releasing a music video in which the minister himself recited the poem in his tweeter handle, Sarma urged the people of the state to welcome his poem’s insights.

    Written in Assamese, the poem described how Sarma felt for his motherland Assam and India.

    Watch the video:

    It said that he is a warrior for the Assamese community whose all efforts are for his state, its people and the country. In the poem, he described Assam as Asomi Aai (mother Assam) and the country as Bharati Aai (mother India).

    Sarma in his poetry said that while Assam is in his blood, he breathes India. The music video has visuals from Sarma’s various public rallies in the state ahead of the state polls.

    The minister in his tweet in Assamese said, “My land and my community are my soul. I have written the poem keeping my respect for my mother Assam and its proud history. Hope all will accept its essence.”

    The poetry came out at a time when Sarma has been criticized by his opponents and political rivals as a fundamentalist. The minister recently said that the BJP does not need votes from the Bengali-origin Muslim community (often colloquially referred to as ‘Miya’ Muslims) in Assam to win the elections, and accused the community of threatening Assamese culture and language and the Indian culture.
