GUWAHATI, Jan 6 - The refusal of the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) leadership to make a clear break with the BJP over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016, seems to have upset the rank and file of the regional party.
The Guwahati City Committee of the AGP today called upon the party leadership to take a final call on the issue of continuing the alliance with the saffron party.
Reminding the party leadership of the earlier decision to snap ties with the BJP on the issue of the Bill, if necessary, the Guwahati City Committee of the AGP said that it totally endorses the decision and wants the leadership to immediately take a call on the matter.
In a letter to AGP president Atul Bora, the Guwahati City Committee stated that the BJP has displayed arrogance and lack of decency and has taken a number of decisions against the interests of Assam in recent times.
The letter � signed by AGP Guwahati City Committee president Jiten Deka, working president Hemen Lahkar and secretaries Girin Talukdar and Khanindra Bora � stated that the party should now take an uncompromising stand on various issues at a time when the State is passing through a very crucial stage.
The AGP�s Guwahati City Committee said that the Central government has entered into a conspiracy to finish off the Assamese race by passing the Citizenship Bill.
It said that certain actions by the AGP leadership have demoralised the rank and file of the party. �The Guwahati City Committee requests you (Atul Bora) not to delay any further the decision to take the ultimate step,� the letter stated.
