GUWAHATI, March 6 - Even as reports continue to make the rounds about the Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) trying to arrive at some sort of understanding with either the BJP or the Congress for the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls, the regional party today said that it is gearing up to contest the Parliamentary elections on its own.

Senior AGP leaders told The Assam Tribune that the party will conduct a series of organisational meetings across all the 14 Lok Sabha constituencies of the State from tomorrow.

�We are already undertaking preparations to contest on our own,� AGP general secretary and MLA Ramendra Narayan Kalita said.

Asked about the likelihood of AGP entering into a tie-up with either the BJP or the Congress for the Lok Sabha elections, he categorically denied any such possibility.

�In fact, beginning tomorrow we will be holding our workers� meetings in all the Lok Sabha constituencies. The first meeting will be held at Barpeta tomorrow,� Kalita said.

Another senior AGP leader and former union minister Birendra Prasad Baishya also discounted the possibility of the regional party renewing its alliance with the BJP or going with the Congress.

�We have taken up various programmes on our own to strengthen our party�s organisational base and to prepare our workers for the elections. As part of it, we will be organising our party meetings in all the 14 Lok Sabha constituency areas of Assam. The first meeting will be held tomorrow and it will be attended by workers from all our seven district committees falling under Barpeta Parliamentary constituency,� Baishya said.

He added that tomorrow�s meeting will be addressed by all senior leaders of AGP, including party president Atul Bora, working president Keshab Mahanta and former Chief Minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta.

�Next we will hold a meeting on March 10 where workers from all our six district committees falling under Jorhat Lok Sabha seat will participate. Similar meetings will be held in other constituencies over the next few days,� said Baishya.

It is noteworthy that a lot of reports have emerged in the last few days about secret parleys between AGP and BJP on the one hand and AGP and Congress on the other regarding the Lok Sabha polls.
