Earlier this month, a war of words broke out between the Chief Minister of Assam and Sisodia. In this, Sisodia threatened to file a defamation case after allegations of corruption in the purchase of Kovid PPE kits. Sisodia claimed that the contracts for PPE kits were given to a company linked to Sarma’s wife.

Rinku Bhuyan Sarma, wife of Himanta Biswa Sarma had earlier issued a clarification over Sisodia’s allegations.

She wrote, “In the first week of the pandemic, not a single PPE kit was available with Assam. Taking cognizance of the same, I reached out to a business acquaintance and delivered about 1500 PPE kits to NHM with a lot of effort. Later on, I wrote to the NHM to treat the same as part of my CSR.”

“I didn’t take a single penny out of the supply. I have always been transparent about my belief in giving back to society, irrespective of my husband’s political standing,” she added.
