    AJP should not become a party for raising ‘donations’: Himanta Biswa Sarma

    With the slogan 'Assam First, Always and Ever', the new political front of AASU and AJYCP was announced on Monday

    GUWAHATI: Immediately after the new political front of the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) and the Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Parishad (AJYCP)-the Asom Jatiya Parishad (AJP)-was launched on Monday, Assam health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma mocked that in Assam many new political parties usually emerge ahead of polls and disappear thereafter.

    Sarma said, “I welcome the party but it should not become a party for raising donations only. When people say that the new political party is regional, I want to ask them whether we are foreigners. We are also a part of the region only.”

    He added that AJP would not get more than 1000-1500 votes in each constituency they decide to contest. The AJP would reportedly fight in some 100 seats in the state out of the total 126.

    With the slogan ‘Assam First, Always and Ever’, the new political front of the All Assam Students’ Union and the Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuva Parishad was announced on Monday. The recently announced political front has been grabbing headlines across the State ever since the anti-CAA movement.

    Ripun Bora, president of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) said, “The AASU and AJYCP leadership had earlier declined to join hands with Congress in the proposed grand alliance but our doors are still open. This party is not our threat but we want all anti-BJP forces to unite.”

    The convenor of the party, Basanta Deka, during the launch, said that it’s already discussing with several parties in the state and trying to unite all regional forces.
