GUWAHATI, March 4: The leaders of the BJP and the AGP shook their hands and clearly spelt out their seat-sharing plan, but their workers at the grassroots level have been shouting slogans against their leaders in full throttle in various places in the State.

After the meeting of the AGP leaders with BJP president Amit Shah on March 2, the tiol party has left 24 seats for the regiol party to fight. Even as it is difficult to predict if the seat-sharing plan will prove to be a win-win agreement or not in the long run, the grassroots workers of both the parties are worried lots as they do not get their own party candidates in a number of LACs. Even BJP MLA Jadav Deka from Kamalpur and Manoranjan Das from Patacharkuchi will have to give up their seats for AGP candidates. The aggrieved party ticket aspirants, including their followers, have been staging dhars in front of their local party offices in the State.

At the AGP office in Guwahati last night, the followers of former Education Minister Thaneswar Boro from Rangiya staged protest. They even said that they would field Boro as an independent candidate from Rangiya. Tomorrow grassroots level workers of the AGP led by its youth wing president Sunil Rajkhowa are set to stage protest in front of the party office at Ambari.

BJP workers from Kamalpur staged protest in front of the election office of the BJP at Ulubari in the city today.
