The two regional parties Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP) and Raijor Dal allied the upcoming Assembly polls in Assam.
Both the regional parties are offshoots of the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protests.
The parties will fight for regionalism and with similar agenda, the parties have allied to fight with the large national parties within the upcoming polls in Assam.
AJP President Lurin Jyoti Gogoi said, “AJP and Raijor Dal will fight the national parties and their allies within the State together within the upcoming polls,”.
Both the parties have clarified that they're going to not enter the Congress-led Grand Alliance within the State.
With the announcement of the alliance between AJP and Raijor Dal, the Assam Assembly Elections are ready to be a three-front war.
Lurin Jyoti Gogoi on Thursday met Akhil Gogoi at Guwahati Medical college to enquire about his health.
“This is that the first time I met Akhil Gogoi officially after he became President of our respective parties. we've discussed beat details and decided that each one regional force should close to fight the BJP out of Assam,” said Gogoi.
AJP President Lurin Jyoti Gogoi has downplayed the three-front contest claims saying that “the contest will preferably be a two-front affair Regional parties vs National parties”.
AJP general secretary Jagadish Bhuyan said, “We won't allow the division of votes in any case. All regional forces will need to unite to make sure that”.
While the BJP and its allies just like the AGP and UPPL are going to be on one side, the Congress lead Grand Alliance comprising of AIUDF and 4 other parties are going to be on the opposite side.
