A day after the newly-formed Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) and Raijor Dal joined hands for the forthcoming state elections and ruled out an alliance with the Congress, the latter’s state president appealed to them to come together against the BJP.
“… Our main aim is to oust the BJP from Assam. That’s why we have appealed to all these political parties that since our goal is one, let us all come together ..now it is up to them. To save Assam, we will continue to appeal to all anti-BJP forces,” Ripun Bora told reporters of Friday.
