    Will quit politics if my party lose BTC poll: MP Naba Sarania

    By Debananda Medak

    GUWAHATI: With just a few months left for the fourth Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) elections, Gana Suraksha Party (GSP) leader and Parliamentarian Naba Kumar Sarania on Saturday said that he will quit politics if his party loses the ensuing BTC elections.

    Sarania said, “The GSP is ready to oust the Hagrama Mohilary-led Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) in the ensuing BTC elections. The non-Bodo voters will aggregate the winners of the GSP ensuring the path to capture power. No political parties of the state, including the ruling BJP, opposition Congress and other regional parties are in a favourable position to defeat our party. I will quit politics if the GSP loses the ensuing BTC elections.”

    Stressing that the change of guard of the BTC is almost sure and certain, he said, “The GSP will fight and win the BTC elections. We will not go for an alliance with any other political parties. GSP alone is capable enough to occupy the BTC. What is left for Hagrama Mohilary is to formally bid farewell to the BTC secretariat.”

    The GSP chief also asserted that Pramod Boro-led United People’s Party Liberal will not become a factor in the BTC elections.   

    The Gana Suraksha Party, a new regional party of the state was formed last year under the leadership of Sarania with support from Sanmilito Janagostiya Mancha, a political conglomeration of the non-Bodos residing in the Bodoland Territorial Area Districts (BTAD).

    The party will field candidates in 35 out of 40 seats in the council elections.
