The president of Trinamool Congress’ (TMC) Assam unit, Ripun Bora on Sunday said that the party is open to alliances with any party at the local levels in order to stand up to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Bora however said that the TMC will not enter into an alliance with the Badruddin Ajmal led All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF).
The Assam TMC chief termed the AIUDF as the B-team of the BJP in the state.
“…there will be no alliance with the AIUDF under any circumstance. It is BJP’s B-team,” Bora was quoted as saying by PTI.
He also said, “TMC wants to join hands with parties fighting BJP aggressively.”
Speaking sternly, Bora further clarified his stance saying that the TMC will not enter into an alliance with any party that has a soft spot for the BJP.
He then took an aim at the Chief Minister of Assam, Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma over the political mayhem in Maharashtra which found its way to Assam’s Guwahati.
Bora said, “Our chief minister is emerging as an expert in horse trading, encounters and spreading hatred. It does not augur well for our state.”
