KOKRAJHAR, June 26 � Bodoland People�s Front (BPF) supremo Hagrama Mohilary today announced snapping of the 13-year-old alliance with the ruling Congress in the State.
Addressing mediapersons at the Kokrajhar PWD guest house here today, Mohilary expressed strong dissatisfaction over the Congress party depriving the BPF on several fronts during the last couple of years, as a result of which the development of BTAD has become stagnant. He said that the policy-making body of the BPF today finally decided not to extend further support to the Congress.
Mohilary has directed the BPF Minister Chandan Brahma and other portfolio holders in the Congress-BPF alliance government to step down and submit their resignation papers. Chandan Brahma is the only member in Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi�s Council of Ministers, with the portfolios of Transport, Tourism and Welfare of Plain Tribes and Backward Classes in BTAD Areas. The BPF presently has 12 members in the 126-member State Assembly.
