New political party to be launched soon

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, Oct 29 � A new political party is in the making to fill up the void created by the thinning influence of the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP), the Autonomous State Demand Committee (ASDC) and the similar parties in the State politics. November 17 next is the date fixed by the organizers to launch their party.

They have described their bid as a �search for a real democratic national alternative to the Congress and the BJP.� The organizers include former MLAs Holiram Terang and Israel Nanda of the ASDC and the AGP respectively. Trinamool Congress leaders Shyamal Barua of Dibrugarh, Alak Ghosh from Mariani, who is also an ex-MLA, are also reportedly associated with the endeavour.

Terang has described the return of the Congress to State power for the third consecutive term as a �return by default.� �The arrogance and short-sightedness of the AGP and the general perception of the people regarding the BJP as a parochial and communal party left the people with no other choice but to vote for the Congress,� he maintains.

In the meantime, former BJP leader as well as a former secretary general of the Sadou Assam Karmachari Parishad (SAKP) Charan Deka, in association with several political and non-political leaders, including some intellectuals, is also making an effort to unite the ethnic groups of the State under the banner of a political party.

For the purpose, he has summoned a meeting in the city tomorrow. Israel Nanda has also been invited to the meeting, Deka said.
