• Assam Ex-MLA sets stage on fire; not as legislator, this time as an actor


    MARIANI: Firebrand Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and former Mariani legislator, Rupjyoti Kurmi was seen in a new ‘avatar’ on Friday.

    The former congress leader and four-time legislator from Mariani constituency, took part in a ‘Bhaona’ (traditional form of entertainment with religious messages), organized by Magic-A’pe Committee at Deberapar Chariali here.

    Kurmi played the role of sage ‘Gargamuni’in the ‘bhaona’ ‘Dasyu Ratnakar Muktilaabh’.

    Performance of Kurmi, who is locally very popular, enthralled the audience. A large crowd had gathered at the ‘bhaona’, especially to see their local ‘hero’ perform.

    It needs mention that this is not the first time that Kurmi has taken part in a ‘bhaona’. He has performed in several such plays in the past.

    Rupjyoti Kurmi, a prominent leader from the tea tribe community, had resigned from the congress and Assam Legislative Assembly in June this year and later joined the saffron party.

    Kurmi, 43, is the son of former congress minister and three-time-legislator Rupam Kurmi.
