Unification of regional forces: AGP proposes ULFA disposes

The main Opposition Asom Gana Parishad is holding its brainstorming general body meeting on Sunday in the city to finalise the unification of regional forces. But it hits a major hurdle in the face of stiff protest from United Liberation Front of Asom (ULFA) who opposes inclusion of former Chief Minister and AGP(P) president Prafulla Kumar Mahanta.

According to information, ULFA's publicity secretary Mithinga Daimary, who has been languishing in jail threatens AGP of dire consequences it if proceeds with Mahanta. In an unsigned letter, Daimary said ,“There can’t be unification of regional forces in Assam with a person whose hands are stained with blood. He was quick to add that Mahanta created a violent and a terrible episode for the people of Assam during his tenure as Chief Minister. It will be a staggering blow to Prafulla Mahanta and his henchmen who have been clamouring for unification.

Meanwhile, the crucial executive body meeting of the regional party on Saturday accepted the unification panel report and took it for final decision on Sunday. On the other hand, AGP president Brindaban Goswami, who runs the risk losing his chair preferred the opinion of the pressure groups saying the regional party will in no way ignore their interest which mean he is not ready to go with Mahanta.
