FROM A CORRESPONDENT
TAMULPUR, Nov 28: BTC chief and BPF president Hagrama Mohilary today said that unlike Congress, BPF never practice the politics of yarn and blanket.
Addressing massive gathering here at Borkhata today BTC chief Mohilary said the BTC administration will work for holistic development of the people.
“We have introduced schemes which have helped in overall development of the BTC region and eble the people to be self-reliant. There is nothing new in the yarn and blanket politics of Congress,” said Mohilary.
The BTC chief said that the BPF will contest in the 15 seats of BTAD in the forthcoming Assembly polls.
He claimed that the BPF will bag at 14 seats in the Assembly polls.
“There is no question of any pre-poll alliance with any party. But we will play a key role in the formation of Government,” he said. It may be mentioned that the Mohilary led BPF is a part of United People’s Front (UPF), a conglomeration of indigenous people of all autonomous councils of the state, which is working to play a key role in the forthcoming assembly election to be held in April next year.
The UPF was formed in the second week of September with BTC chief Hagrama Mohilary as its president, former chief of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council as its working president, HSDC leader Holiram Terang as vice-president and Mishing Autonomous Council chief Ronoj Pegu as general secretary.
Earlier, expressing confidence in the people’s mandate in favour of the party, Mohilary had said the Congress, BJP, PCDR and AIUDF have no hold in the BTAD and there is every chance of the BPF winning maximum seats in BTAD.
