KOKRAJHAR, March 31 � Bodoland People�s Front (BPF) supremo Hagrama Mohilary is optimistic of forming the BTC Government for the third consecutive term.
Talking to media persons here, Mohilary claimed that although there are a large number of candidates from several political parties in the ensuing election, the BPF candidates would win with huge margins in not less than 35 seats out of the total 40 BTC constituencies.
He said that in the last two terms, the BPF-led BTC Government had worked for peace and development of the region, and that the people would support the BPF and cast their votes in favour of the party.
He further said that the BPF is going to contest all the seats on its own and there is no pre-poll alliance with any political party till date. Like on the earlier occasions, peace and development will remain the main poll plank, he added.
Mohilary said that in his constituency at Debargaon, he expects to win by a margin of not less than 10,000 to 15,000 votes. �The rival candidates will not be a factor at all for me,� he maintained.
Meanwhile, the BPF has already started its election campaign to woo voters, particularly in the remote villages.
