While speaking on the occasion, Gogoi opined that Sarma has been discharging his duties with dedication.
''During the COVID-19 pandemic, he played an extraordinary role. I was very influenced by his way of functioning in that phase,'' Gogoi added.
The Assam CM too spoke on the occasion and said that without bringing his personal life into the limelight, the book featured accounts of daily activities which he undertook as a Chief Minister.
Sarma further termed him as a fortunate Chief Minister who did not have to face any situation like the catastrophic earthquake of 1950, the Indo-China War of 1962, or the Assam Agitation.
''As a result, I could concentrate on Development activities,'' he added.
He further informed me that in the next four years, he would bring out subsequent editions of his dairy.
Later, he also thanked the former Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi for releasing the book.
