On Twitter, he said, "Today, I shall introduce a Bill to repeal provincialisation of Madrassa. Once the Bill is passed, the practice of running Madrassa by Assam Government will come to an end, a practice which was started by the Muslim League Government in pre-Independence Assam."
 
 
The three-day winter session of the Assam Legislative Assembly will begin from December 28.
 
Earlier on December 14, Sarma had said that the State Government has decided to make 'education secular' and 198 high madrasas and 542 other madrasas in the State will operate as any other general educational institute and will not give admission to students for theological studies.
