RAHA , March 5 : Resentment is brewing among the BJP leaders and workers here against the allocation of the Raha seat to AGP candidate for the ensuing Assembly elections.
The BJP workers and leaders in 82 no. Raha assembly constituency have opposed the candidature of Bishnu Das, a resident of Jaluguti in Morigaon district, of AGP from Raha and asked the BJP higher authority not to leave the Raha seat for AGP.
During a protest rally of BJP workers and leaders at Raha on Friday, they opposed AGP’s candidature saying the BJP higher authority had committed a mistake in giving the seat to AGP.
BJP Raha mondol committee president Chandra Kanta Das taking part in the protest , said, "We have been working hard since months to elect the BJP nominee from the constituency and our efforts have now gone in vain."
On the other hand, BJP grass root workers vehemently opposing the AGP candidature from the Raha constituency openly stated that they would defeat the AGP candidate in the election.
It might be mentioned here that AGP has no leaders and workers at Raha as twenty eight panchayat committees of AGP at Raha constituency recently resigned from the party alleging negligence from the party state leaders.
