After meeting the jailed Raijor Dal leader, Gogoi spoke to media and said that the newly floated regional parities would jointly fight in the upcoming assembly election.

“We, the AJP and the Raijor Dal formed an alliance. But we will not form any alliance with any national party or communal party,” he added.
