“The BPF is trying to maintain the alliance “dharma” with BJP. It has fielded candidates in 37 seats leaving two seats to BJP and one to AGP. But the saffron party has fielded candidates from 26 seats in the elections,” Mohilary said addressing party workers in the meeting held at Bathow complex, where 250 members of UPPL and BJP joined the BPF.
“BJP is working against the alliance dharma. It is distancing itself from the BPF in the council elections”, Mohilary said.
Mohilary claimed that his party is winning 25 seats in the BTC election and form the next government in the council.
Mohilary further said that peace and development in the BTAD is the top priority of the party’s agenda in the election. Former BTC executive members and BPF leaders Rajiv Brahma and Doneswar Goyary were also present in the meeting.
The State Election Commission postponed the election to the BTC that was scheduled on April 4, due to COVID-19 pandemic. Governor’s Rule was imposed and the BTC was also dissolved after the term of the Bodoland Territorial Council expired on April 27.
