    BPF Will Act As the Opposition Party in BTC :-

    GUWAHATI: Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) is ready to take its role as the ‘Opposition’ in the newly formed Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) executive council, said BPF’s general secretary Prabin Boro on Saturday.

    BPF has already moved the Gauhati high court alleging violation of constitutional provisions while forming the new BTC council. In its petition before the high court, BPF alleged that despite having the single largest party, BPF was not given the opportunity to prove its majority on the floor of the House.

    The court has decided to take up the matter on December 22.

    In the recently concluded BTC polls, BPF emerged as the single largest party by winning 17 out of BTC’s total 40 seats in BTC. However, the alliance of the United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL)-BJP and Gana Shakti Party (GSP) formed the council with 22 seats. While UPPL bagged 12 seats, BJP got nine and GSP managed to win only one seat.

    Boro addressing the media on Saturday said, “Law will take its own course. But for the greater interest of the people of BTC, the BPF has decided to sit on the Opposition bench in the council. BPF will keep a sharp eye on all the activities of the new council.”

    The BPF leader added that the BPF party will hold its Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting at Barma on Sunday.BPF Will Act As the Opposition Party in BTC.

    “All our future strategy including party alliances will be discussed in the CWC,” Boro added.
