GUWAHATI: With the BTC poll campaign heating up in Assam, BJP is now ready to put a dent in its ally Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) camp.
According to BJP, two prominent BPF leaders- its general secretary and MLA Emmanuel Mosahary and spokesman and MP Biswajit Daimary were all set to join the saffron camp.
State’s senior cabinet minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “Both Emmanuel Mosahary and Biswajit Daimary will join BJP in a day or two. Since Daimary is an MP we have fixed a time for his joining.”
Daimary while speaking to Time8 said, “Time will tell the development.”
However, for BPF, the roping in of the duo by BJP would not impact much in the party’s fight in the ensuing council polls.
The BTC polls are slated to be held before December 15. The elections to the 40 seats of the council were scheduled in April but were delayed owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.
