Guwahati (Assam), June 24 (India), : In the midst of a massive crisis in Maharashtra's Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government, Assam Congress chief Bhupen Kumar Borah sent a letter to rebel Shiv Sena MLA Eknath Shinde on Friday, urging him to leave Assam at the earliest in the state's best interest.According to the letter, your presence in Guwahati with MLAs of the ruling Shiv Sena from Maharashtra, who have been encased in a hotel for alleged horse-trading to overthrow the elected Maharashtra government and the continued media coverage of the same has uneasy ties with the Assamese community, and the busy practices of the Assam government in providing royal hospitality are excessive and unacceptable.Assam has been blasted by your presence, he said, citing Guwahati as a safe haven for MLAs who have no respect for fundamental values and loyalty at all.The state Government machinery, according to the Congress chief, should be tasked with the resolution of the flood crisis, but the presence of MLAs here has been acting as a impeder.However, current CM Dr Himanta BiswaSarma has shown himself to be nothing more than a wheeler-dealer promoting and supporting political horse-trading in Assam.

Sarma and the government machinery should be busy coping with the flood crisis, but your presence here has been serving as a barrier, the letter further states.Given the harm that your presence has done to Assam and its people, I would like to urge you to evacuate Assam at the earliest opportunity, according to BJP MLC Pravin Darekar, as the number of MLAs supporting him seems to be increasing as more legislators arrive in Guwahati on Friday, bolstering the political turmoil in Maharashtra.Shinde was allowed to make a proposal by the rebel MLAs in Guwahati, who then displayed black ink and eggs on a poster depicting a picture of rebel MLA Eknath Shinde, and also launched slogans against him in Nashik.
