Guwahati: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal is likely to launch election campaigns for AJP in poll-bound Assam.
With the end of the two-hour-long meeting between Raijor Dal President Akhil Gogoi and Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) President Lurinjyoti Gogoi at the premises of Gauhati Medical College Hospital (GMCH) on Monday, the latter stated that they are in touch with all the independent regional parties having no links with national political parties or alleged communal political parties for election campaigns in the poll-bound Assam.
He also confirmed that both AJP and Raijor Dal will publically announce the seat-sharing arrangements for the upcoming elections in the state of Assam through a press conference.
Speaking to the media, Lurinjyoti Gogoi said, “Congress has been appealing before the AJP party for a grand alliance; however, both AJP party and Raijor Dal is firm on their call to contest the upcoming elections as a united regional front.”
AJP party might contest in at least 47 constituencies in the first phase of the election, informed Lurinjyoti Gogoi. The decision came just after the meeting with Raijor Dal President Akhil Gogoi, who is currently undergoing treatment at GMCH.
With no positive feedback from Hagrama Mohilary-led Bodoland People’ Front (BPF) party, AJP will be adopting new strategies for 12 BTAD constituencies ahead of the state polls.
It may also be mentioned that AJP has already sealed a poll alliance with the Autonomous State Demand Committee (ASDC), a party that has been demanding statehood for the hill region of Karbi Anglong since the 1980s.
