Guwahati: Priyada Gogoi, mother of jailed President of Raijor Dal party Akhil Gogoi on Monday expressed her gratitude to the people of Sivasagar for the historic win of her son in the state election.
She also appealed before the people of Sivasagar to keep ushering their blessings upon Akhil Gogoi, so that he can work for the betterment of Assam and its society.
With the victory, Akhil Gogoi claimed to become the first Assamese person to win an election from behind the bars.
RD candidate Akhil Gogoi, who has been currently admitted to Gauhati medical college hospital (GMCH), defeated BJP’s Surabhi Rajkonwari with a margin of 11,950 votes.
However, the party failed to make a mark in the elections.
Meanwhile, the Raijor Dal leaders in a press statement claimed that the victory of the BJP-led alliance will be very harmful to the state.
They further blamed Congress-led ‘Mahajot’ for the loss. “People of Assam couldn’t take Congress-led Mahajot as an alternative to the BJP party,” said the Raijor Dal leaders in the press statement.
They further alleged that Congress’s decision to ally with Badruddin Ajmal-led AIUDF being the prime reason for the vote swinging in favour of BJP.
Religious polarization and beneficiary politics led to BJP’s electoral triumph, claimed Raijor Dal.
The party also thanked the people of Sivasagar for ushering their tremendous support upon firebrand leader and RD president Akhil Gogoi.
