Any decision on alliance with AIUDF, Left parties or any other party will be made following consultations with our party workers, Congress general secretary in-charge of Assam, Jitendra Singh, said.
Congress and the communal AIUDF are trying to destroy the bond among people from various faiths it to gain political mileage, AGP president Atul Bora said.
AIUDF chief and Lok Sabha member, Maulana Badruddin Ajmal, said he was 100% confident about the truck.
A 1.12-minute video of the incident has gone viral on social media. Assam’s Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma was among those who condemned the controversial slogan.
State minister Himanta Biswa Sarma slammed the people believing in the “culture and civilisation” of Maulana Badruddin Ajmal's AIUDF which carries the “Bangladeshi” party tag.
The Congress said the sole motive behind the proposed grand alliance was to oust the BJP from power.
“Raijor Dal”, which translates to “People’s Party”, was floated jointly by 70 organisations, led by peasants’ body 'Krishak Mukti Sangram Samitee' of which jailed RTI activist Akhil Gogoi is a leader.
The Left parties, Bodoland People’s Front (BPF), and some smaller regional forces are in the Congress-AIUDF’s scheme of things vis-a-vis the envisaged 'Grand Alliance'.
Aminul Islam of AIUDF had also said that the quarantine centres in Assam were worse than detention camps for illegal immigrants.
A Congress insider had said that the party and the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) will soon take the final decision on the consensus candidate in a day or two.
