JORHAT, March 15 - The decision by the central leadership of AGP to form an alliance with BJP for the parliamentary polls has come under severe criticism from a large number of senior party leaders and grassroots workers in Jorhat district.
In a meeting held at the Jorhat unit of the party office here today and attended by about 200 party members from across the district, the party leaders and supporters severely opposed the decision to share seats with BJP for the ensuing polls and castigated the AGP's central leadership.
A party source told this newspaper that several resolutions were adopted in the meeting, lambasting the alliance decision.
Terming the decision of having an alliance with BJP �opportunistic� and �undemocratic� by a few leaders of the party, the meeting demanded that the terms and conditions of forging the alliance be made public, stated the source.
A decision not to offer any kind of support to the alliance in the parliamentary polls by all the people who attended the meeting was taken through a resolution.
Another resolution adopted in the meeting demanded that the central leadership must disclose the opinions given by the party's district unit presidents and secretaries to the party central leadership on having an alliance with BJP.
The resolution also questioned how could the decision on alliance with the saffron party be taken without organising executive meetings of the district units of the party.
The meeting was held under the presidentship of Raja Chakravarty, a staunch AGP supporter who strongly supports regionalism. He was also a former Assam Agitation leader.
Many district level top AGP leaders were present in the meeting.
