GUWAHATI, Nov 8 - Terming the victory of the JD(U)-RJD-Congress �Mahagathbandhan� in the Bihar Assembly elections as a victory of �secularism�, the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) today said that the Bihar poll results will have a national impact and BJP will suffer defeat during next year�s Vidhan Sabha elections in Assam as well.
�The people of India have seen the real face of the BJP. The Bihar electorate has given a verdict against communal and divisive politics,� AIUDF president and Lok Sabha MP Badruddin Ajmal said, while congratulating Bihar Chief Minister and JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar on the victory of the Grand Alliance.
He said that the BJP will lose the 2016 Assembly polls in Assam.
�The BJP has taken a number of U-turns in Assam, including on big dams, foreigners and land swap deal. People of Assam will reject the BJP,� Ajmal said.
The AIUDF has already initiated steps to form a �grand alliance� in Assam and written to a number of non-BJP and non-Congress parties to fight the 2016 polls together.
The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) has termed the Bihar election result as the victory of secular forces. The regional party said that the results of the Bihar polls would definitely have an impact in the politics of Assam.
CPI(M) Assam State Secretariat member Suprakash Talukdar said that the Bihar election results have pointed to the end of �Modi magic�. �The BJP�s downfall started from Delhi Assembly polls and has now been reiterated by the Bihar results. This will bring a new dimension to the country�s politics. We hope for a replication of defeat of communal forces in Assam as well,� Talukdar said.
Dambaru Bora, State Secretariat member of the Communist Party of India (CPI), termed the Bihar verdict as a victory for �inclusiveness�. �BJP�s communal agenda has been thwarted,� Bora said.
