The AJP and jailed activist Akhil Gogoi's Raijor Dal are contesting the polls in an alliance.
The AJP has forged the alliance with the Raijor Dal of jailed anti-citizenship law activist Akhil Gogoi for the assembly elections.
Addressing a press conference here, AJP president Lurinjyoti Gogoi said the Election Commission of India (ECI) allotted the party symbol to the regional party on Saturday.
Though no one was injured in the incident which took place in Kalag area, one car of the convoy was damaged, AJP spokesperson Ziaur Rahman claimed.
The AJP was floated in September last year against the backdrop of the agitation against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
The AJP president Lurinjyoti Gogoi said the decision to come together was made to avoid the split of the votes of nationalists and people believing in regionalism.
Appealing to the people to vote for BJP, Shah said Assam has become ‘bullet-free and agitation free’ and the next BJP dispensation will make it ‘flood-free’, calling floods its biggest problem.
The grand alliance could feature the AJP, Raijor Dal, Autonomous State Demand Committee (ASDC), Gana Shakti, tribal councils etc.
