There is no sincere, honest and upright leader like Rahul Gandhi: MGVK Bhanu
GUWAHATI: Former Additional Chief Secretary to the Assam Government, MGVK Bhanu joined the Assam Congress on February 11. APCC president Ripun Bora along with other party leaders welcomed MGVK Bhanu to the party in the Congress head office in Guwahati.
During the joining ceremony, Bhanu said, “I studied in Telugu medium. God has given me two qualities: I can work hard and I work with sincerity.”
“In 1985, I came to Assam and retired after 33 years in 2018. During my stay I have been showered love by Assamese people wherever I worked,” said Bhanu.
“I needed a platform to continue working so I have decided to join Congress and I will apply for the Tezpur Lok Sabha seat for the coming Lok Sabha polls. I have a house in Tezpur so I will stay there and will work for the development of Assam and Tezpur till I die. I feel I am at home here as I have known these people for a long time,”
Speaking about the National Congress President, Rahul Gandhi, he said, “There is no sincere, honest and upright leader like Rahul Gandhi. He spearheaded the recent wins in the three states with his leadership qualities. So, I have committed myself to work under his able leadership.”
