BPF ministers skip cabinet meeting

By The Assam Tribune

GUWAHATI, Dec 13 - Hours after BJP dumped its ally Bodoland People�s Front (BPF) in the Bodoland Territorial Council to join hands with its rival United People�s Party Liberal (UPPL), the three BPF ministers on Sunday skipped the cabinet meet, chaired by Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, without any intimation.

The BJP-led Assam government has three cabinet ministers from the BPF � Pramila Rani Brahma, Chandan Brahma and Rihon Daimary.

�The three BPF ministers were absent. We do not know why they did not attend the cabinet meeting,� Parliamentary Affairs Minister Chandra Mohan Patowary told reporters outside the CM�s residence, where the cabinet meeting took place.

The government will �try to know� why the trio were absent in the crucial cabinet meeting, which approved a proposal to close down all government-run madrasas and Sanskrit tols in the State, he added.

�The name plates of the three ministers were there in their respective seats. They did not inform us about their absence,� said Patowary, who is also the spokesperson of the Assam government.

The BJP ditched its alliance partner BPF and allied with UPPL and GSP to jointly form the next BTC after the poll results of the 40-member council gave a fractured mandate. � PTI
