Assam gets a woman Finance Minister

Guwahati, May 11: If it's Nirmala tai at the Centre, it's Ajanta baideu in the State now.

As a woman heads the Finance Ministry in the Centre, Assam also has a woman at the helm of affairs in the Finance Department in the State now.

Ajanta Neog, who was sworn-in as a Cabinet Minister in the Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma-led government on Monday, has been allocated the Finance portfolio.

An influential minister in the earlier Tarun Gogoi-led Congress governments, Neog had left the party to join the BJP last year.

She will also hold the Social Welfare department in the new government.
