JORHAT: State coordinator of Asom Jatiya Parishad (AJP), Adip Phukan announced a 100-member conveners' committee of the Asom Jatiya Parishad (AJP) Jorhat district committee on Monday in a meeting held at Mukti Jujaru Bhavan in Jorhat. Phukan also said that the party leaders had taken a decision of seat sharing with like-minded regional parties which maintained a distance from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the Congress and the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF).
AJP was formed recently with the support of the All Assam Students' Union (AASU) and the Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad (AJYCP), breakaway Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and breakaway Trinamool cadres and a section of intellectuals. Phukan said that in the 2021 State assembly elections, the AJP would form the government.
"We will join hands with all tribes and communities who believe that regional aspirations of the people is above all else and who are working in the field to this effect," he added.
The 100-member district conveners' committee has 12 chief conveners and 88 conveners. Niren Sharma, former AGP member, has been made the district coordinator. The district conveners' committee has been entrusted with the task of forming conveners' committees in all five assembly constituencies which fall under Jorhat district. Phukan further said that by December this year, conveners' committees would be formed in all the districts of Assam once the AJP State committee was formed.
