AGP hits the streets in Dispur

Thousands of AGP leaders and workers gathered in Dispur on Monday demanding government action to bring down the price level. The workers who arrived in the city of Guwahati in the morning from different places of the state gathered at Khanapara and later took out a procession to Dispur alleging the government's failure to deal with the price hike. Talking to reporters, AGP leader and former minister Atul Bora said the government has been failing on all fronts and that the protest will continue untill and unless steps are taken to control the prices of essential commodities. Former Chief Minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta was present in the protest programme along with party president Chandra Mohan Patowary, AGP MP Birendra Prasad Biashya, former MP Sarbananda Sonowal. The announcement of the Dispur Chalo programme was made at the party executive meet in Guwahati on Sunday evening.

AGP can do only this and what else they would do. The party is dying and it will be very difficult for them to come back to power until and unless there are new faces and new people in the party. The party needs to strengthen the youth wing and develop dynamic leaders.

AGP is the party and Prafulla Kumar Mahanta the CM who has drowned Assam in liquor. Assamese boys and girls are being ruined by this menace.
