Chandra slams AGP leadership

BJP leader Chandra Mohan Patowary lambasted AGP leadership for avoiding a pact between the parties to corner Congress in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

Addressing a press conference in Guwahati on his arrival from New Delhi, the former AGP president blamed it all on the autocratic style of functionings by the leadership during the last couple of years.

“I am disappointed. This has forced me to pull out of the regional party and finally to join BJP,” said Patowary who was associated with AGP since its inception.      

He said that AGP’s failure to reach pact with BJP would help Congress win the polls in some pockets with flying colours.

Patowary joined BJP at a recent function in New Delhi to be fielded from Barpeta in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
