MUHSALPUR, April 7 - BPF president Hagrama Mohilary has ruled out the allegation levelled by some organisations and parties that BTC fund has been used by him for hiring helicopters for election campaigns. Mohilary was addressing an election meeting at Baganpara in Baksa district in support of Maneswar Brahma, the BPF candidate for Barama (ST) LAC, on April 4.
