No patch up between Cong, BPF

Assam Congress has ruled out further patch up with BPF. But the ruling party will forge alliance with other secular parties if need be. This was what party president Anjan Dutta told reporter in Guwahati on Monday.

Dutta said that the decision came from the party high command a few months before the BTC elections.  He said that there was no bar for the party to join hands with any other "secular" force for the election. He said the party is all prepared to go it alone in the BTC elections alone, but it may form an alliance if necessary.

According to Dutta, many BPF leaders have expressed willingness to join Congress before the BTC polls
