GUWAHATI, Oct 16 � Pledging to make an all-out effort to connect with the grassroots voters and leave behind its past follies, the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) today said that it was open to constructive criticism and that it would implement the recommendations made by the State�s intellectuals and organisations at the just-concluded AGP�s national political convention.

The party also advocated infusing young blood into the party and grooming young leaders.

�Regionalism holds a lot of relevance in the State and so does the AGP. We might have made a few mistakes in the past but we are committed to reaching out to the masses with an agenda intrinsically linked to the well-being of the region and its people,� AGP president Atul Bora said at a press conference today.

Terming the convention as a significant event ahead of the 2016 Assembly polls, Bora said that it helped the party to realize that it had no dearth of well-wishers cutting across diverse segments of the populace.

Terming the Congress and the BJP as two sides of the same coin, Bora said that resolving Assam�s pressing concerns had never been the priority of either.

Bora said that resolution of the ethnic issues by taking into confidence all the indigenous groups, and ensuring the rights of the indigenous people over land and resources would be some of the key areas to focus on for the party.

�Similarly, a lasting solution to the illegal migrants issue, ending border rows, containing flood and erosion, checking the escalating price rise, etc., are also of paramount importance to us,� he added.

Terming the youth as the party�s future, Bora said that serious efforts would be directed towards involving more and more youth in the party affairs.

�We will increasingly take recourse to social media for the purpose. We will also form a think tank with distinguished senior citizens and intellectuals,� he said.
