JORHAT, April 9 - Anchalikatabad Suraksha Samiti, an organisation formed recently by Niren Sharma and Harish Bhuyan, both recently expelled AGP leaders of Jorhat and several other like-minded persons supporting regionalism, urged the voters on Monday to vote against the BJP and it�s allies in the polls.
Addressing newspersons at Jorhat Press Club on Monday, Sharma, Bhuyan and several others said they had to come out of the party for opposing the AGP�s electoral alliance with the BJP, which had brought in CAB, which was against the interest of the state.
The leaders appealed to the AGP workers and electorate to vote for candidates who opposed CAB.
Castigating the AGP leadership for going for the alliance despite the party�s central executive held on February 20 in Guwahati in which it was decided not to have a tie-up with the BJP, they said that the leaders had reduced the party to a �club of seven/eight members� to pursue their own vested interests.
The AGP leaders should apologise to the families of the 855 martyrs who had laid down their lives in the six-year historic Assam Agitation to oust illegal foreign nationals, as they were now in cohorts with the BJP, which was planning to give citizenship to lakhs of Hindu Bangladeshis through the CAB.
Replying to a query, Sharma said that the Samiti would be having discussions across the state with people supporting regionalism and would in all likelihood float a political party to uphold regional interests.
