BOKAKHAT, Dec 6 - The AGP has been carrying on with the alliance with the BJP primarily to see to it that the Clause 6 of the Assam Accord is implemented in letter and spirit, said AGP president Atul Bora, while attending a largely attended meeting at the Bokakhat Stadium today.
The AGP president and the State Agriculture Minister said that the alliance with the BJP is not a surrender, and it cannot be said to be an unholy tie-up. He asserted that his party is going to be stronger with stepped up organizational activities at the grassroot level. He also hinted at an upgradation of the town committee to a municipality, construction of a stadium with a big budget and a model college at Kaziranga, and upgradation of the Swahid Kamala Miri Hospital.
The AGP president criticised all the past MLAs of Bokakhat for not doing any major works.
The regional party�s MP in the Rajya Sabha, Biren Baishya, also echoed Bora�s sentiments.
�Some people have been trying to derail the Assam Gana Parishad. But, the party is still following its principled aims and objectives. The AGP has now gained momentum with new energy. The linguistic and religious minority people had faced immense difficulties during the Congress rule, but not in the period when AGP was in power,� the MP said.
Baishya lauded the various schemes being executed by the State Agriculture Minister and requested the public of Bokakhat to continue to back Bora for overall development of the constituency.
Keshab Mahanta, executive president of AGP, also appealed to the gathering to make the AGP stronger in the greater interest of the Assamese people.
Kalpana Patowary, singer, who joined the AGP recently, also appealed to the gathering to bring in a change through assimilation of Assam�s vibrant cultures. Minister Phanibhushan Choudhury was also present on the occasion.
