* AGP president urges all workers to work on a war footing
GUWAHATI: With the Assembly election barely a few months away, this is a crucial year when all members of the AGP and its various wings will have to work on a war footing, said AGP president and Agriculture Minister Atul Bora.
Bora said this while taking part in the bike rally on the occasion of the first anniversary of the Asom Chatra Parishad (ACP), student wing of the AGP. The rally that began at Dispur concluded at the AGP headquarters at Ambari. From the Ambari party office, the AGP workers took out a cultural rally to the District Library where they celebrated the foundation day.
Bora said, "The new generation is equipped with science and technology. I appeal to them to take the party forward. We believe in regionalism with a nationalistic outlook. Taking strong regionalism as the maxim the AGP will make stride. The importance of regionalism has got a boost countrywide. The nation will be strong only if regional powers are stronger. The student community will have to be committed for the wellbeing of the State with commitment to nationalism.
"The AGP hasn't deviated from its own course and goal. We're committed to take forward the ideology and feelings of the people of the State." When asked on its coalition with the BJP, Bora said, "We need to sit across the table."
AGP general secretary Hiranya Kumar Konwar, Manoj Saikia, Satyabrata Kalita, vice president Sunil Deka, Asom Juva Parishad president Jitu Borgohain and others were present at the celebration.
