Assam Assembly Election 2021: BJP President JP Nadda to announce alliance with AGP and BTR today
The BJP is sweating profusely to ensure its victory in the Assam Assembly Election 2021. Meanwhile, state BJP president Ranjit Kumar Das has told that BJP chief JP Nadda is about to announce an alliance with the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and BTR (BTR).
Actually, on Wednesday i.e. Wednesday, there was a meeting at JP Nadda's house, in which many things have been decided in view of the Assam assembly elections. After this meeting, Ranjit Kumar Das told that today i.e. on Thursday, Nadda is going to announce an alliance with AGP and BTR. He has also told that the names of the candidates for the first and second phase elections have also been decided. After the approval of the Parliamentary Board, the names of these candidates will also be announced soon.
According to ANI, earlier on Wednesday evening, a meeting was also held at Home Minister Amit Shah's house in which leaders of AGP, BTR and BJP along with JP Nadda also attended. The strategy for elections was discussed in this meeting. BJP's Central Election Committee will meet on Thursday to finalize the first list of candidates' names. Top BJP leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, are expected to be present in Thursday's meeting. The core group includes Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, Minister Hemant Biswa Sarma and State BJP President Ranjit Kumar Das.
On the other hand, the Bodoland People's Front coalition (Bodoland People's Front-BPF) in Assam has left the NDA. On Saturday, the BPF left the NDA and joined the Congress. BPF President Hagrama Mohilary said that we cannot play friendship and alliance with BJP. "BPF has decided to go with the Congress-led coalition to provide a stable government in the state with peace, unity and development," he said.
The BJP has already announced that it will not form an alliance with the BPF. Assam BJP leader and state finance minister Hemant Biswa Sarma had said about two weeks ago that the BPF would not be a part of the NDA in the elections. After the election of the Bodoland Territorial Council, the relationship between the two parties had soured.
Assembly elections will be held
in three phases in Assam, voting will be held in three phases in Assam. On 2 May, the results of Assam will also come with the rest of the states (West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry). In Assam, polling will be held on March 27 on 47 assembly seats in the first phase of the state, April 1 on 39 assembly seats under the second phase and on April 6 on 40 assembly seats under the third and final phase. There are 126 assembly seats in Assam. The term of the Assam Legislative Assembly is being completed on 31 May.
This time the BJP has a challenge to save its power in Assam. There he faces a coalition of Congress and AIUDF. In the last assembly election, the BJP won power for the first time in a state in the Northeast, ending 10 years of Congress rule.
