Kokrajhar: The United People’s Party, Liberal (UPPL) on Sunday made their stand clear that they will not hastily announce the names of their candidates but go for discussion with like-minded parties to contest in the forthcoming BTC election.
The president of the UPPL, Pramod Boro inaugurated the office of the central committee, UPPL at Kokrajhar town near Sister Margaret School on Sunday evening in presence of senior leaders of the party and BTC MCLAs. Before inaugurating the office, Boro hoisted the flag of the party.
Talking to reporters, Boro said the people of the region wanted a change in the council and the UPPL had emerged as a strong regional political party with the support from different communities. He said the people of entire BTC area wanted good governance, free from corruption and domination. The BPF has been running the council for 17 years but it has failed to deliver good governance, safety and security to all, he said, adding that the council was being run in a dictatorial manner.
Boro said that talks with like-minded parties which would never allow corruption were going on and everything would be in the right track after few days. He also said that people of all communities had come to UPPL seeking alternative government in BTC.
On the remark of BPF president Hagrama Mohilary that the BTR Accord had nothing new, Boro said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself came to the grand public gathering in Kokrajhar and said that the BTR Accord was a significant accord. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh also echoed the same.
