GUWAHATI, Nov 11 - The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) today made it clear that it would not compromise on its ideology of regionalism and would not forge any electoral alliance with any political party, which may go against the interest of the State.
It further stated that it has already started dialogues with organisations and political parties which represent the ethnic groups of the State, in view of the ensuing Assembly elections. This step has been initiated in accordance with the recommendations of the national convention and the wishes of the people of the State.
In a statement, AGP general secretary Ramendra Narayan Kalita said that irrespective of the prevailing political situation in the country, the AGP would not go for any decision that may affect the interest of the people of the State. The AGP is sticking to its stand on a foreigners-free Assam, asserted the AGP general secretary.
In response to speculations in a section of the media that the AGP may go with either of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) or the Congress during the ensuing Assembly elections in the State, Kalita described the political stands of both the parties are detrimental to the cause of the State and its people.
