Guwahati: Senior BJP leader and Guwahati MP Bijoya Chakravorty on Sunday welcomed former Congress minister Himanta Biswa Sarma's decision to join the party.

"Sarma is no doubt a powerful and effective leader and his joining the party will definitely have a positive impact," Chakravorty told reporters here.

She said that the party would welcome him whole-heartedly when he joins it once the formalities were over.

Asked about the reported opposition by a section of party workers to Sarma's joining the party, she said that the BJP is a democratic party and allows all its members to express their opinion but it was also a very disciplined party and once a decision is taken, all abide by it.

She also said that the BJP believes not in words but in work and the party aimed to set up a strong and stable BJP in the 2016 Assam Assembly polls.

Chakravorty was a Union minister in the previous NDA government.
