More blows for AGP; another MLA to resign

Blows after blows seem to have awaited the Asom Gana Parishad 6 months before the assembly polls. AGP MLA from Dhakuakhana Naba Doley is believed to have been preparing to leave the regional party very shortly. His close associates told Assam Times that Doley has already got geen signal from the BJP leadership to join the party.

 He is expected to quit the regional party as soon as BJP leadership fixes his joining date. He is sure of ticket to contest the assembly polls early next year. The development assumes significance a day after his counterpart in Sootea constituency Padma Hazarika joined BJP who would be contesting from BJP this time. Hazarika would join BJP on October 30.

 But AGP leadership are unhappy with these leaders who have joined BJP. “We don’t under stand what forced leaders like Chandra Mohan Patowary, Pulakesh Baruah, Hiten Goswami, Padma Hazarika have to join an anti-nationalist party like BJP,” a senior AGP leader told Assam Times.
