Shah joined AGP in presence of party president Atul Bora and Assam Minister Phani Bhusan Choudhury. AGP leadership welcomed him to the party and hoped that the move will help strengthen the regional party.
Shah Alam was earlier elected to the Assam Assembly from West Goalpara contituency in 2001 (from NCP ticket) and 2011 (from AIUDF ticket). He was defeated by Congress’ Andur Rashid Mandal by a margin of 24,339 votes.
