The only Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) councilor of Lakhimpur Municipal Corporation joined Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday.
The councilor Udita Das resigned from AAP and joined BJP in the presence of MLA of Lakhimpur Manab Deka.
MLA Deka said that she joined BJP after getting inspired by progressive politics and development of Assam.
Welcoming her in the party, he tweeted, “Smt Udita Deka, the lone AAP councillor in North Lakhimpur, joins @BJP4Assam after getting inspired by progressive politics and development of Assam by Hon CM Dr. @himantabiswa Ji.”
“I welcome her and her supporters to join us in our march for prosperity of Assam,” he added.
Reacting to this, AAP alleged that MLA Deka forced her and her family to resign and join BJP and as there no other choice left, she had to join.
Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is expected to visit Assam in the first half of March.
It may be mentioned that Udita contested for AAP in Lakhimpur Municipal Election held last year where she emerged as the lone AAP councilor in the region of Ward No. 14.
