Barpeta: "If the minorities genuinely want a better future, then it is high time for them to boycott the Congress-AIUDF alliance," said Atul Bora, the President of Assam Gana Parishad (AGP), while attending a Jatiya Aikya Samaroh held at the district sports association in Lower Assam's Barpeta district.
"During the long-term rule of the Congress party in Assam, the peace and harmony of the state have been compromised from time to time -- mainly the religious minority groups. The Congress party alliance AIUDF party is another example," said Bora.
Bora also alleged that 'Agar businessman' and AIUDF supremo Badruddin Ajmal has always curbed the rights of the minority groups. "That is why its party insignia is ‘lock and key’," he claimed, adding, "If by chance the Congress-AIUDF alliance comes to power in Assam; there will be a huge clash between the two political parties."
Bora added, “Renowned Guru Prasad Das of Barpeta invented the vacuum brakes for railways, that is why the people of Barpeta especially the minorities will put a stop to the journey of Congress-AIUDF alliance train."
President Atul Bora further stated that the AGP party strongly believes in the Assam Accord and therefore, it takes 1971 as the base year for citizenship.
"Keeping this in mind the party has been working for the betterment of the people," Bora stated.
Many new political parties, as well as Congress and AIUDF, have been criticizing and targeting Asom Gana Parishad for their own personal agendas," he stated, adding that both parties will bite the dust come election time.
"The Congress-AIUDF alliance, which got a big zero in the Bodoland Territorial Elections (BTC), will also get a big zero in the upcoming Assam Assembly elections," Bora said, taking potshots at the parties, said to be gearing up for an alliance to jointly contest the polls.
