BJP, AGP bracing up for poll debacle!

In a major setback for BJP two months before the Assam Assembly polls, the Asom Gana Parishad is set to reject the poll alliance with the saffron party. Talking to Assam Times a senior BJP leader said in New Delhi that the regional party finds it difficult to strike deal leaving 35 seats to the national party. 

"Some other reasons have also made it difficult for the regional party to strike any alliance. The regional party is caught in a grim protest in many places. That's why, BJP has abandoned the idea of a deal with AGP," said the senior BJP leader.          

He said," a circle of AGP leaders who have been working at the instance of their Congress counterparts has been trying to mar the AG-BJP poll prospect. They have ignited the protest among a section of AGP workers in the grassroot level who came down to Guwahati to oppose the poll alliance between AGP and BJP. "But I think AGP will have to pay heavy price if the regional party fails to forge a poll pact with us. Let them suffer. A section of the top AGP leaders have failed to convince the party workers of the benefits of the poll pact," said the BJP leader.  

He said that Assam BJP leadership have been contemplating action against a section of party men who have been trying to oppose the patch up with AGP. "They have been staging dharna in Guwahati only at the instance of Congress. We won't tolerate. Party leadership will get tougher with these workers," said the BJP leader.
