Guwahati: Hinting that all is not well within the AIUDF party led by Maulana Badruddin Ajmal, as there is growing dissent against him, MLA Karim Uddin Barbhuiya on Saturday exuded confidence in the AIUDF forming government in the state of Assam in the next few years.
He also stressed that MP Badruddin Ajmal will not be the chief minister even after AIUDF comes to power.
Speaking to the media, MLA Barbhuiya said, “I want to make it clear that we’ll be in the government by 2026 or 2031. Maulana Badruddin Ajmal is not going to be the CM. We understand the sentiment of the people, CM will be from someone among us mainstream Axomia people.”
The AIUDF leader lashed out against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Assam for failing to evict illegal immigrants from the state.
“Political parties are creating a mere atmosphere of Bangladeshi people ruining Assam but while being in power they haven’t done anything to evict them. It’s just a political issue for BJP and AGP to gain power in the state,” he added.
Earlier on Thursday, Assam cabinet minister Pijush Hazarika told the media that the state government has decided to move Supreme Court seeking re-verification of the National Register of Citizens (that was published in 2019 August).
It may be mentioned that in 2020 last, Assam’s National Register of Citizens (NRC) State Coordinator Hitesh Dev Sarma had submitted an affidavit before the Gauhati High Court and said that the NRC list which was published on August 31, 2019, was just a supplementary list of NRC and 4795 ineligible person names were included in the list.
