GUWAHATI: The BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) will chalk out its strategy for the 2021 Assam Assembly polls only after discussions with all stakeholders. This was stated by the party's national vice president and in-charge of the party's Assam unit, Baijayant Jay Panda here on Thursday. Talking to the media, he said, "The polls in the BTC (Bodoland Territorial Council) gave us a new alliance. We did not have any tie-up with the BPF (Bodoland People's Front) for the BTC elections. But, we still have an alliance with the BPF at the State level in Dispur. We are already taking feedback about the BJP-BPF tie-up for the forthcoming Assembly polls. We'll also have discussions with the BPF."

Panda added, "During the last four decades, the BJP forged many alliances. We do not have any intention to sideline anybody. Some have opted to move out of the alliance – that is a different issue altogether."

On the present status of BJP, Panda said, "Our position in Assam is very strong. That has been amply proved in the results of the BTC polls. The masses of the State have come out in support of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his policies. The BJP will garner more than 100 seats in the State's Assembly polls.

On allocation of the party tickets, Panda said, "The ideal candidates will be chosen on several parameters. Besides having the leadership capability and contribution to the party, each of them must have the ability to win in the elections. We will also consider the senior leaders of the party."

Referring to the farmers' agitation, Panda said, "The Opposition is misguiding them. It is ironic that the issues they are opposing now were in their manifestoes earlier. The moment the BJP introduced them, the Opposition have started creating the mess.

"The old system is still there. The MSP (Minimum Support Price) and mandis will remain. We have given them the new option to sell their produces in the market. This will help them. However, the Opposition is playing politics on this issue and misguiding the farmers."

Panda concluded his two-day visit to Assam on Thursday. During these two days, he participated in several organizational meetings.
