Union Home Minister Amit Shah arrived here late Sunday on a three-day visit to Assam during which he will attend the Himanta Biswa Sarma-led government's first anniversary celebrations, and travel to the India-Bangladesh border.
Shah was received at the Guwahati airport by Sarma and other senior state BJP leaders a little after midnight.
“Honoured to receive Adarniya HM Shri @AmitShah ji at LGBI Airport, Guwahati. Adarniya Griha Mantri ji will attend several events over next two days in Assam," Sarma tweeted.
