AGP-BJP patch up again

In a significant development, AG and BJP have forged pre poll deal on Thursday. That too despite stiff resistance from state BJP unit.

The deal was finalized in New Delhi where state unit president Sarbananda Sonowal was suddenly invited to the capital to attend the election committee meeting.

According to sources, BJP has offered AGP, Koliabor, Lakhimpur, Dhubri and Barpeta. But the regional party is not satisfied with the offer as AGP has bleak prospect in all these seats.

Party president Rajnath Singh, prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, leaders Sushma Swaraj and LK Advani were also present in the meeting.
