Leaders like Nazir Hussein, general secretary of the Bongaigaon district Congress committee, central organizing secretary of UPP Mohamoti Basumatary, and Rahima Khatun of Chirang district unit of the UPP were among these who joined the BPF on Friday at a meeting held in the BPF office, Chirang in presence of Minister Chandan Brahma, Chirang district president of the BPF Paniram Brahma and many others. Chandan Brahma welcomed the new entrants while urging them to work for the development of BTAD.
