GUWAHATI: A day ahead of joining the dinner party being hoisted by the BJP national president Amit Shah in Delhi for the NDA partners, the AGP on Monday exuded confidence that the party’s alliance with the BJP will yield positive results.
The AGP president Atul Bora told The Sentinel that the AGP had joined the NDA with BPF and local parties supported by the Tiwa, Rabha and Mising communities to fight the recent Lok Sabha election to defeat their common enemy which was the Congress. “We are eagerly waiting for May 23 when the results will be declared. We are ready to accept the people’s verdict,” Atul Bora said.
The AGP had fielded Moni Madhab Mahanta, Kumar Dipak Das and Javed Islam as its candidates from Kaliabor, Barpeta and Dhubri parliamentary constituencies respectively in the recent Lok Sabha elections. The BPF, another NDA partner had fielded Pramila Rani Brahma as its candidate from Kokrajhar constituency. With most of the exit polls predicting return of the NDA government at the Centre, Amit Shah is hosting a dinner for the NDA leaders on Tuesday to chalk out the future strategy.
The exit polls results declared by various agencies on Sunday predicted another term for the NDA under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In fact, many of the results projected over 300 seats to the NDA, seeing it sail past the 272 majority mark in the Lok Sabha.
The exit polls predicted the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance getting 82 to 165 seats. Six exit polls predicted that “other” parties were likely to get more seats than the UPA.
Atul Bora will be accompanied by senior AGP leader and Cabinet minister Keshab Mahanta to the Tuesday’s dinner party in Delhi.
