KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi on Wednesday criticized the leaders of the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) for their decision on contesting the Lok Sabha Elections together with BJP. “We condemn the AGP-BJP alliance,” said Gogoi, while addressing media on Wednesday in Guwahati.
He slammed the regional party for their alliance with the saffron party even though the latter had clearly voiced for another Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, if voted to power. “AGP has betrayed the people of Assam as well as the leaders of the party have also betrayed regionalism,” Gogoi said adding, “KMSS will oppose the AGP-BJP alliance in the Lok Sabha elections.”
Further, Gogoi also informed that KMSS had met the leaders of the AGP on Tuesday and asked the party to contest the elections alone, but the leaders of the party refused KMSS’ proposal. He said that AGP has become a party with no-principles by once again joining hands with BJP.
