BAKSA: Former working president of the Bodoland People's Front (BPF) and former MP of Rajya Sabha, Biswajit Daimary and former general secretary of BPF and MLA of No. 58 Tamulpur LAC, Emmanuel Mosahary will formally join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on November 22 at Kumarikata under No. 26 Darangajuli BTC Constituency in the district of Baksa.
An open meeting and a joining ceremony will be held at Kumarikata where former Rajya Sabha MP Biswajit Daimary and former general secretary of BPF, Emmanuel Mosahary, along with their followers, will formally join the BJP in presence of Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, State president of BJP, Ranjit Das, State Finance Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma and other BJP leaders.
This will be the turning point in the political scenario of not only BTR but also of the State. Talking to the media persons, Biswajit Daimary said, "I have spent a long period with BPF but the leaders of BPF don't want to accept suggestions from my side which are for the welfare of the common people of the BTR. If I can't do anything for the common people while being a part of the BPF, why should I stay in that party?"
Addressing media persons, Daimary further added, "I want to work for the people of the nation, which is not possible staying in a regional party like BPF." "I want to work for those people of BTR who are fearing for their land rights, properties, language and culture. BJP is a party for the common people, not for any specific community. I will try to solve the problems being faced by the people of BTR, irrespective of caste and community, which were not solved during the last 17 years rule of the Hagrama-led BPF administration. I also want to end the issue of Bodo-non-Bodo," he added.
On the other hand, former general secretary of BPF and MLA of Tamulpur, Emmanuel Mosahary said, "I am going to join the BJP because it is the demand of the time. I had a great wish to work for a national party, so I have decided to join the BJP."
He added, "I am hundred percent sure that in BTR election, BJP will occupy Kokrajhar and will form the council. Around 4.60 lakh people have already joined the BJP throughout the BTR ahead of the polls. Every day, 500 people in Tamulpur are joining the BJP seeking change."
He also stated that the regional concerns would not be pushed to the background if the BJP came to power in BTR after the polls. "The BJP might be a national party, but there is every indication to show that the party will be deeply involved in the concerns of the local populace if it comes to power," he added.
"I expect that more than 40,000 people will be present in the joining ceremony of BJP to be held at Kumarikata under Tamulpur subdivision in the district of Baksa," said Mosahary.
