Himanta Biswa Sarma rejected the controversy over BJP led State government’s decision to open up a number of model colleges in the name of Jan Sangh leader Deen Dayal Upadhyaya. He also said that it was not the people but few intellectuals who are opposing colleges in the name of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya.

The Education Minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma indicating directly about Dr Hiren Gohain, said “If some intellectuals, propagating left ideology in Assam, say that they do not know Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, it is nothing but their intellectual bankruptcy.”

“These left-intellectuals should know that people of Assam have voted the BJP to power. There is no UPA government. We will follow the ideology of our leaders,” Sarma further added.

The Assam government’s decision to set up a number of new model colleges named after Deen Dayal Upadhyaya has triggered protests, with various organisations and parties like the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) and Congress asking why the colleges should not be named after eminent personalities from the state.
