    Former AGP Minister Jagadish Bhuyan jojns BJP

Dark clouds are hovering over the regionalism in Assam politics when one after another AGP leaders are joining BJP. That too hardly a year before the assembly polls.

Yet another AGP leader joined the saffrone party on Sunday. He is none other than Jagadish Bhuyan.

The former minister joined the national politics at a function attended by state unit president Siddharth Bhattacharya in the BJP party office in Guwahati.

Apart from Bhuyan, former AJYCP president Manoj Baruah is set to join the national politics next week. Baruah formally quit the organization on Sunday.

 This would be followed by the joining of two former AASU leaders Tapan Kumar Gogoi and Sankar Prasad Ray. Much to utter disappointment, more and more AGP and AJYCP leaders are believed to have been preparing to join BJP.
