People voted for change, claims Sonowal

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 15 - Expressing confidence that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led alliance would be able to form the next government in the State, president of the State unit of the BJP, Sarbananda Sonowal today said that development of the State would be the main agenda of the alliance.

Talking to The Assam Tribune, Sonowal asserted that the people of the State voted for a change and they have accepted the BJP-led alliance. He pointed out that there was no backdoor understanding and the alliance was declared well ahead of the elections. �We have publicly announced whatever understanding we reached before the elections and the people have accepted the same. We hope that all the alliance partners will now respect the sentiments of the people of Assam,� he added.

Replying to a question on whether the alliance would formulate a formal common minimum programme, Sonowal said that the BJP, on its part, has already made its stand clear on the vital issues of the State in its vision document released before the polls. He said that the BJP had detailed discussions with its alliance partners Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and Bodoland People�s Front (BPF) on the issues concerning the State.

Sonowal revealed that development of the State and providing good governance to the people would be the main agenda of the alliance. The other major issues like protecting the identity of the indigenous people of the State, problem of infiltration of foreigners, etc., would also be taken up seriously by the alliance, he added.

The State BJP president asserted that the much talked about third front would never be a reality as the voting

pattern already suggested the mood of the people. He also asserted that the BJP would never join hands with the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) under any circumstances.

Asked what would be the composition of the government if the alliance comes to power, Sonowal said the matter would be discussed immediately after the declaration of the election results on May 19. He claimed that there would be no misunderstanding among the alliance partners on the issue. �We are confident of settling the issues relating to the composition of the ministry amicably,� he asserted.
