Expressing views by those holding powerful positions, after taking an oath under the Indian Constitution have always been open to controversy. A recent one, posted about 10 a.m. on December 26, a 48 second video, by chief minister Assam, the controversial, Himanto Biswa Sarma has generated widespread outrage.

 On December 26, in a post on X, around 10 a.m. by controversial chief minister of Assam, Himanto Biswas Sarma, openly glorifying the “heroic” characteristics of the “Kshatriya” (dominant, “warrior-ruling” caste) and demeaning the Shudra (toiling, artisan sections of society) saying their duty is to “serve”  Brahmins, Kshatriyas Vaishyas has been sharply criticised.

“We strongly denounce Assam CM Himanta Biswas’ tweet claiming that “Shudras are to serve Brahmins, Kshatriyas and Vaishyas” BJPs Manuvadi ideology in full play!” says another post on “X” by Communist Party of India (Marxist) while other users have also commented.


That this post promotes segregation of societal roles among castes, openly promotes the hierarchical valorisation and domination of the privileged sections of society, responsible for decades of oppression and exclusion of both the Shudras and Ati-Shudras is clearly not an issue of either constitutional principle or conviction by those belonging to the majoritarian Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Sarma was previously a member of the Indian National Congress (INC).
