Chaotic situation occurred at a BJP campaign gathering, where Cabinet Minister Rihon Daimary had come to pitch for Mangaldoi BJP candidate Dilip Saikia on Friday evening in Udalguri’s Sikaribangla.
While Daimary was addressing the gathering, leaders of the Adivasi Students’ Union took a jibe on the minister pertaining to the granting of ST status to the six ethnic communities along with staging protest during the speech.
Protesters sloganeered ‘BJP go back’, ‘BJP murdabad’, ‘ST is our legal demand’, among others, with placards in hands during the minister’s ongoing speech.
BJP leaders-workers and AGP leaders-workers were present during the event.
However, Daimary exuded confidence saying Dilip Saikia will win the battle and that the saffron party will definitely win 10 seats in Assam.
The MLA also criticised ABSU leader Pramod Boro during the campaign.
