Assam BJP To Only Admit Leaders From Bodoland Areas: Ranjit Kumar Dass

BJP open to persons associated with culture, education, agriculture and allied sectors: Ranjit Kumar Dass

Guwahati: The Assam BJP has closed its doors for leaders of other political parties, except those from Bodoland areas, state BJP President Ranjit Kumar Dass said on Wednesday. He added that the decision had been taken in view of the BJP's ongoing organisational elections.
Mr Dass' statement seems to allay the fears of some senior BJP leaders, who are annoyed over the spate of Congress leaders joining the saffron party.
BJP veterans, who have toiled for decades to build the party in Assam, are feeling insecure now that Congress' sitting Rajya Sabha MP Bhubaneswar Kalita, Santius Kujur and former Congress minister Goutam Roy are all in the BJP.
Mr Dass, however, added that his party was open to political leaders from Bodoland Territorial Areas Districts (BTAD) joining it. The BJP's presence is seemingly weak in BTAD, even though the Bodoland Peoples' Front (..

Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington reveals Jon Snow’s future at end of show

Kit Harington as Jon Snow with Liam Cunningham as Davos SeaworthHBO Fans have been trying hard to out the disappointing final season of Game of Thrones behind them. But the cast keeps bringing it back up to the forefront of their minds.
Reportedly, Game of Thrones star Kit Harington was asked about his character's last moment on the show during a pre-Emmys chat with The Hollywood Reporter. Fans have apparently wondered about the finale of Game of Thrones, in which Snow — having been relegated back to the Night's Watch — left Castle Black and was seen heading beyond the Wall. Was he was going on a ranging mission? Was he merely escorting the Free Folk? Or was he leaving the Night's Watch behind and rejoining the Wildlings to live with them?
Turns out, that final assumption (which, admittedly, was the most popular consensus online) is correct.
