The recent e-mail threratening to blow up the BJP’s never-say-die spirit as soon as he arrives in Shillong has forced both Assam and its neighbouring Meghalaya to beef up security ring during Mr Advani’s visit. Besides, the Z category ring, the Assam police is put on maximum alert to ensure safety and security to the BJP stalwart.

The main Opposition Asom Gana Parishad pins high hope on Advani’s visit that could help the regional party to brighten the poll prospect. The BJP leader is schedule to hold a brain storming meeting with AGP leaders to formally forge an electoral alliance for the Lok Sabha poll which is round the corner.
