    Send BPF to ‘Museum’: Himanta Biswa Sarma to BTC public

    Himanta Biswa Sarma said that it’s time to dethrone Hagrama Mohilary led BPF from the power

    GUWAHATI: Ally in Dispur, BJP and Bodoland Peoples’ Front (BPF) were now up for a rivalry as BJP has up its ante against its ally BPF in the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) polls. The BTC polls were expected in December first week.

    On Monday, addressing a poll rally in Udalguri district’s Harisinga, Assam’s finance and health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that it’s time to dethrone Hagrama Mohilary led BPF from the power of BTC.

    He said, “Fifteen years have gone but BTC has not seen any development. Though we expected Mohilary to rule BTC by taking the public in confidence, what we have found was only ‘misrule’ by BPF. It’s time to send BPF to museum and vote for ‘parivartan’.”

    Reiterating that BPF has done huge corruption and discrimination in the council areas, Sarma added, “We have never seen BPF coming out with a concrete budget. All the development works in the BTC area were done either by the Centre or state government. Then where did the entire funds go? There is no explanation with BPF.”

    However, reacting to Sarma’s speech, Mohilary said that the ‘fight’ between the two allies was ‘scripted’. “We have understanding between us. Though we are an ally, Sarma is only criticizing us as an election tactic. BPF will come to power again,” he said.

    Election to the BTC has been witnessing a four-cornered contest where the Pramod Boro-led United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL), BJP and the Gana Suraksha Party (GSP) were giving the ruling Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) a hard time.

    BJP is contesting in 25 seats out of 40 in the BTC.
