Guwahati: Krishak Mukti Sangram Samiti (KMSS) on Sunday made it clear that the peasant organisation will play an active role in the Assam assembly election scheduled for 2021.
KMSS joint general secretary Mukut Deka said, “We have been gearing up to appear in the Assam assembly election scheduled for 2021 with an active role to oust the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh backed fascist BJP government.”
Stressing that the KMSS has been critically assessing the ground political situation of the state ever since 2016, Deka said, “Due to the spreading Covid-19 pandemic, our preparatory organisational activities are brought to a halt. We are hoping to make a comprehensive consultation with the people of Assam in July. Accordingly, we will make our decision public.”
Over the last few months, a section people have been circulating series of social media posts that express sympathy towards KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi. The virtual supporters of Akhil Gogoi have also launched a social media campaign speculating him as a chief ministerial candidate for the 2021 assembly election.
Taking reference of the social media campaign, Deka said, “We have been expanding party works besides launching an extensive membership drive in the grass roots. It is for sure that the KMSS, as a new regional political party will play an active role in the state’s ensuing assembly elecition scheduled for 2021.”
However, Deka made it clear that KMSS supremo Akhil Gogoi was yet to signal a final ‘go ahead’ to the development.
Earlier, the All Assam Students’ Union too hinted formation of a new regional political party during the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act movement while the Congress expressed its welcoming rhetoric to all the CAA opposing political parties and organisations.
