GUWAHATI, May 20: AGP President Atul Bora today said that the expectations of the people of the State from the party this time far exceeded the expectations of the people when it first formed the government in 1985 after the Assam agitation. "The expectations of the people from the AGP have increased considerably and we have to move ahead keeping those expectations in mind," Bora said.
Addressing mediapersons in the city today, the AGP President urged the MLAs of his party to treat their work as worship and strive for the overall development of the State.
Talking about the party's objectives once the government is formed, he said, "We have always been working for the timely implementation of the Assam Accord and detection and deportation of all illegal immigrants. The implementation of the Assam accord will be our topmost priority."
Justifying the formation of the BJP-led grand alliance, Bora said that the alliance worked in favour of the party. "If all the parties like the BJP, BPF, Rabha and Tiwa groups had contested separately, the Congress would have gained mileage out of it," he said, adding that the AGP will always keep its regiolist and tiolistic policy in mind. Bora also thanked the people of the State for voting the AGP and ending 15 years of misrule and corruption of the Congress. The AGP was in power in the State for 10 years i.e. two terms and sat in the opposition bench for 20 years. "The experience of being in the opposition for 20 long years will help us run the government smoothly with the BJP," he said, adding that the problems of the State can be solved only when all the members of the alliance work together.
