Mahanta attends AGP-BJP seat sharing talks

Former Assam Chief Minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta is taking the lead in the AGP-BJP poll deal discussion in New Delhi on Wednesday.

The meeting is scheduled at 3 in the afternoon at the residence of BJP president Amit Shah in presence of Sarbananda Sonowal.

Apart from Amguri, Tezpur, West Guwahati and Bongaigaon, AGP is free for friendly contest in some other seats. But the BJP leadership are not willing to leave beyond 25 seats for the regional party. But sources said AGP is least interested in friendly contest.

Senior AGP leaders on Tuesday invited the founder president to break the deadlock over the seat sharing deal when BJP straightly refused to give the regional party more than 20 seats.

BJP leadership in New Delhi deployed Himanta Biswa Sarma to talk to the AGP delegation comprising Atul Bora, Pradeep Hazarika, Phani Bhushan Chaudhury, Birendra Prasad Baishaya and RN Kalita.

On Tuesday no breakthrough surfaced in New Delhi. Amit Shah did not meet the AGP delegation. Sarbananda Sonowal left the capital much to a major disappointment of the regional party leaders
