The Congress should now not be part of the Mahajot, the ‘Grand Alliance’ it fashioned with a number of different events earlier this yr, Lok Sabha MP Gaurav Gogoi stated as we speak. Instead, he stated, it should stay unbiased and deal with rising stronger on the grassroots.
“I believe it is time for the Indian National Congress in Assam to be independent of the Mahajot. The Congress is the only party that can take on the BJP. For that we need to strengthen our party organisation across Assam, including those constituencies where there are MLAs of the Mahajot,” the Parliamentarian from Kaliabor stated.
“Prior to the formation of the Mahajot, the party has fulfilled its duty as an Opposition party on its own. Going forward, the party may still consult with other Opposition parties if and when the BJP government brings anti-people policies. People have huge expectations from the Congress and if we will fulfil them, we will form the next government in 2026.”
Mr Gogoi advised media individuals in Guwahati that earlier he had made his “personal view” recognized to Assam Pradesh Congress Committee President Bhupen Kumar Borah.
Earlier this yr, the Congress had solid the Mahajot, allying with at the very least ten political events, together with its arch enemy, the All-India United Democratic Front (AIUDF), and its estranged ally Bodoland People’s Front, forward of the Assam Assembly elections.
However, the alliance with AIUDF did not go down effectively both with the lots or celebration staff, who have been miffed at making a gift of essential seats.
“These sentiments are not mine alone but those of thousands of party workers across the state,” Mr Gogoi stated as we speak.
He identified that in lots of areas of the state throughout the state polls, there have been Mahajot candidates and never these of the Congress.
“When the Congress was in the Mahajot and had to leave several seats for our allies, many grassroots workers were disheartened. So, it is time that the party listens to the aspirations and sentiments of the party workers and free itself from the grand alliance,” he stated.
Bypolls to at the very least 5 constituencies are scheduled within the subsequent 5-6 months.
