Sources close to Dr Atul Debbarma said that he is deeply shocked at the treatment meted out to him by the state and central BJP leadership.

“Our winning in the majority of seats is confirmed. We are confident that BJP will form the government again. I am receiving huge responses from door-to-door campaigns. People are happy and greet me with smiling faces which indicates the people have faith in us”, said CM Saha.
