Speculations that Sarma may contest in Lok Sabha elections have been doing the rounds for sometime since veteran BJP Parliamentarian from Gauhati constituency, Bijoya Chakravarty, announced her intention not to be in the fray in 2019.
Asked if he is likely to be the BJP candidate from Gauhati seat, the minister said, "I can contest from any of the 14 constituencies in Assam. I will contest if ticket is given to me."
Talking to reporters at the Assembly complex after presenting the state budget, the NEDA convenor said he cannot make a decision on himself.
Sarma is currently holding portfolios of finance, transformation and development, health and family welfare and PWD.
