Speculation rife that MC Mary Kom may join BJP after meeting Himanta Biswa Sarma
With election season approaching Manipur there are strong speculation amongst a section of the media that MC May Kom will be playing a pivotal role in campaigning for the BJP in her state of Manipur.
The meeting between the NEDA Convenor and Assam Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and his subsequent post in Social media has now further fuelled the speculation that MC Mary Kom will campaign for the saffron brigade .
Himanta Biswa Sarma who is playing a key role in the upcoming election in Manipur met MC Mary Kom and had this to say through his Facebook post
"Her ideas on politics seem as sturdy as her punches in boxing ring. It was a delight meeting her and exchanging notes with Ms MC Mary Kom on political situation in #Manipur today. The Olympian is humble and has brilliant ideas".
Mary Kom was made a MP under the current NDA rule recently and this was seen as a way of ensuring that the BJP is keen to highlight their concern about the tribal communities in the northeast.
