    BTC Polls: BPF MP Biswajit Daimary resigns from party post

    BJP believed that the joining of Daimary would strengthen the party’s grip in the BTC region

    GUWAHATI: The Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) MP Biswajit Daimary was all set to join the saffron camp of BJP, as he resigned from his post of working president in BPF on Wednesday.

    Daimary, however, was still the sitting Rajya Sabha MP as he said, “As per procedure I would leave BPF keeping in mind the allied parties like AGP and the BJP which had supported election to the Rajya Sabha.”

    On questions of reasons for his decision to leave the party, he said that differences of opinions with the party have forced him to do so.

    “There are several reasons. While the Bodoland Territorial Region (BTR) agreement was meant to serve the community better, BPF is discarding it. As I intend to work for my people and community in general, I believe it has become difficult to work for me staying inside BPF,” Daimary said.

    Though he did not name but said that he would like to join a national party.

    State’s senior cabinet minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “BPF’s senior leaders- Emmanuel Mosahary and Biswajit Daimary will join BJP shortly. Since Daimary is an MP we have fixed a time for his joining.”

    BJP believed that joining of the two prominent BPF leaders into their camp would strengthen the party’s grip in the BTC region. In the ensuing BTC (Bodoland Territorial Council) polls in December, BJP has fielded several of its party candidates against its ally BPF. Sarma himself has launched massive attacks on BPF chief Hagrama Mohilary during several election campaigns off late. He said Mohilary’s way of functioning has not yielded expected results in the BTC region.
