Ajmal indicates ties with secular parties

By Correspondent

HOJAI, June 22 � The State is likely to witness a major political change as the AUDF is expected to get closer with the Congress before the coming State Assembly elections. AUDF president Badruddin Ajmal almost clearly indicated his party�s desire for such an understanding while talking to this reporter.

Admitting that his party has differences with the Congress in many respects, he was hopeful of overcoming these hurdles at the appropriate time.

Softening his stand against the Congress, Ajmal said, �In politics there are no permanent friends or foes, for the Assembly election will still one year left; anything can happen and time would be the most deciding factor in this respect.�

Stating that like the Congress and the AGP, the AUDF is also a non-communal secular party, Badruddin said that his party expected an alliance with such parties in the days to come. When asked about his preference to either the Congress or the AGP, Ajmal averted or direct answer but said that till the AGP snapped its relations with the BJP, there could be no understanding with the AGP under any circumstances. He also said that his party is a regional one. �I am very much comfortable with my party maintaining its regional character and would have been happy had there been a strong bond with AGP, CPI, CPM , NCP etc as a combined force.�

Badruddin admitted the fact that in politics party workers expected a lot and unless they are satisfied, it is very difficult to keep them to the party�s fold.

On the question of alliance, Ajmal said �At the national level, the UPA and the earlier NDA Government were the outcome of alliances even with small parties; and that is why alliance has become a national formula.�
