    The BPFhas joined the Congress-led Mahajot, because there was a demand for it, from the people of Bodoland. The people can see the BJP has become unpopular and is being routed thiselection. The Mahajot is coming to power and the BPF, with them.We have seen public sentiment across Assam, change in favour of Congress, over the last few weeks. Securing the best for the people of Bodoland, need the BPF to be part of the winning alliance.” Secretary AICC, Sri Anirudh Singh firmly stated, “The idea of the Mahajot is to represent the diversity of Assam, and the Congress welcomes BPF in this mission.

When we said the Congress is going to win 101 seats, people said we don’t even have a Bodo ally. Now we do, and Assam’s destiny is about to change for the better.

    The AICC warmly, welcomes SriHagramaMohilary to the Mahajot.” All members of the Congress-led Grand Alliance were present at the Press Conference with a unanimous voice echoing immense solidarity, to fight the communal politics, which has decayed the cultural ethos of the State in the past 5 years.
