The AIUDF is a component of Assam’s 10-party and Congress-led grand alliance of Opposition. It was formed two months back to oust the BJP from power.
Badruddin Ajmal said AIUDF will support a leader from Congress as the next CM of Assam if the 'Grand Alliance' is voted to power.
It is Congress' history to spread communalism by collaborating with communal parties: Nadda at Assam
The BJP president on Saturday said the Congress, which itself is associated with communal parties, alleges that the BJP is communal.
Badruddin Ajmal headed All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) is considered to have a large base among Assam's about 35 per cent Muslim population.
"We have to protect Assam. Voting for the Congress will mean inviting Ajmal to the doorsteps of Dispur (Assam’s seat of power)," said the state’s Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma at a rally
The alliance between the two parties was created to fulfill political ambitions, the senior BJP leader said at an election rally at Nalbari.
He also said that a news channel has projected him as a CM candidate, despite clarifications given by his party that he was not up for chief ministership.
The top BJP leader further said that his party will make all efforts to make sure that Assam remains free of militancy, agitation, infiltration, violence, corruption, flood and pollution.
Ajmal Badruddin said the Assam election would be a "turning point" for the country as the BJP's defeat will begin from the state.
Claiming that the Congress-AIUDF never indulged in any communal acts, he sought justice from the voters and people of Assam.
The AIUDF is a part of the Grand Alliance comprising the Congress, BPF, CPI(M), CPI, CPI-ML and the Anchalik Gana Morcha.
The Congress has formed an alliance with Lok Sabha MP Badruddin Ajmal-led All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) and other parties against the BJP-led coalition in the state.
The Congress has formed an alliance with the All India United Democratic Front, the Left and a regional party to fight the Assam Assembly polls that are likely to be held in April.
