Senior BJP leader Ram Prasad Sarmah, who represented the Tezpur parliamentary constituency, has resigned from the party after he knew that, his name was not included in the candidate panel list for the Tezpur constituency.

In a Facebook post he announced that, “I have left BJP today. But I really feel pained in my heart for those old BJP workers of Assam who were most neglected in the Party by the new intruders in the Party. I was strongly raising my voice on their behalf. Now there will be none to raise voice for them. It's old guards of the Party who tioling for decades brought BJP to power without any other support. But now they are most neglected and ill treated. Love you my dear friends. I will be still with you. Thank you for your help and support and support and love for me.”

“Resigning from the primary membership of the BJP right now after serving the RSS/VHP for 15 years and the BJP for 29 years. I felt greatly insulted when my name, a sitting MP and the President of Assam Gorkha Sammelan,did not find place in panel sent up by the state BJP committee. Friends and the people of Assam and my constituency, I will continue to serve you till the end of my life. I will always lovingly nurture your support and love for me for such a long time. I love you from the core of my heart,” Sarmah said in another Facebook post.

Ram Prasad Sarmah shared, “A song of Bhabi film of 1957,which is befitting to my resignation from the BJP. I felt it to be a great insult,defamatiom,discrimination and injustice to more than 20 lakh people, 13 lakh voters of my constituency,50 Gorkhas of North East, and about 1.5 Gorkhas of our country besides the Hindi speaking people of NE  in even not sending my name in the panel of proposed candidates. How the name of a sitting MP and the President of Assam Gorkha Sammelan, could be so negligently dropped off the panel??!!!!! It is a hard slap on my face and the faces of the people of my constituency and the members of my community. Thank you Mr. Sarbanand Sonowal, Mr. Ram Madhab, Mr.  Himanta Biswa Sarma for your support, love and care shown to the people of my constituency, my community and me. Love you all.”

Sarmah was elected to the 16th Lok Sabha from Tezpur seat in 2014.

Earlier, Sarmah had expressed his anguish and threatened to quit the party.
