Jorhat, March 13: Jorhat MP Kamakhya Prasad Tasa said in a press meet at Jorhat Press Club on Sunday, “Trinomool BJP has no relation with BJP party. BJP is BJP and Trimool BJP is floated by a breakaway group and those who were denied party ticket by selection committee at the Centre.”
Jorhat Lok Sabha BJP MP Kamakhya Prasad Tasa who is all set to fight against three-time sitting MLA and Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi from 101-Titabor LAC, is confident to win by a huge margin. Tasa warned Tarun Gogoi that he would not allow him to go to Titabor as a Chief Minister, he would have to go as a Congress candidate and he himself would not go as MP but as the BJP candidate.
MP Tasa said that BJP under the leadership of Prime Minister rendra Modi was working for the greater interest of the Assamese people. He flayed Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for land transfer issue with Bangladesh and for non-recognition of ST status to six communities.
Regarding the BJP-AGP alliance, he said that the alliance would be a success as the BJP-led NDA had done much for the State of Assam when the AGP was in power. “If the people of Titabor vote for me then my priority will be the development of Titabor, followed by border issue as it is a long-pending issue, solving the unemployment problem, and to investigate about the use of Central Government funds, especially the Rs 100-crore drinking water project scam and the streetlight project in Titabor,” said the MP, who is also the spokesperson of BJP. He added that if he wins he would obey the party high command. If the high command asked him to leave the MP seat he would do so and if he was asked to leave the MLA seat then too he would obey. Tasa expressed confidence that the BJP would come to power in Assam and win all five constituencies in Jorhat as people wanted change and the winds of change were blowing in favour of the BJP.
