Guwahati, March 15, 2019
Minister of state for health and family welfare Pijush Hazarika claimed that there was a secret understanding between the Congress in Assam and the Badruddin Ajmal-led All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
“The Congress and AIUDF have a secret understanding and hence the Ajmal-led party will not field any strong candidate in Koliabor Lok Sabha seat,” said Hazarika.
He added, “In the year 2006, former Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi used to say ‘Who is Badruddin’. Now the dynamics have changed. Both the parties have mutually divided the constituencies for the ensuing polls.”
Ajmal has time and again expressed his wish for an alliance with the Congress. However, Gogoi said that alliance with the AIUDF is “not possible”.
It may be mentioned 2019 Lok Sabha elections in Assam will be held in three phases on April 11th, 18th and 23rd, 2019. The results of the election will be announced on May 23rd, 2019.
