Will BJP-BPF honeymoon end?
An escalating war of words between BJP and BPF leaders starts posing a serious threat to the one year old Sarbanabda Sonowal government. Both the parties have no dearth of issues to take on each other which is bound to embitter the alliance they struck last year.
BPF president Hagrama Mohilary has accused the BJP leaders of threatening him and his party of an impending defeat if BJP is not allowed to take a deep grip in BTAD areas.
Talking to a television channel in Guwahati very recently, the regional political party boss called BJP a “dangerous” one. “Yes, it was a direct threaten to us. They told me that if BJP refuses to help us, we would have to pay heavy price in the 2019 general election,” said the BTC chief.
“They have threaten me. I am afraid of BJP. BJP us very dangerous these days. What I need to do is to move the people. Should I surrender?” said Mohilary with a lighter vain.
He said under no circumstance BPF will leave the Kokrajhar seat in the next Lok Sabha polls. “Why we will leave it to BJP.No parley is necessary. We won't, he said.
He further accused a section of BJP leaders of collecting cash in BTAD areas promising house to the people under the Prime Minister’s Housing Scheme.
Hagrama simply said, “I don’t know what is called corruption. But these people keep collecting cash. I complained it to the state party president to stop it. And these people have accused us of pocketing money and doing not well.”
State BJP leadership have asked Mohilary and BPF in rank and file to help BJP strengthen its base in BTAD areas where they struck alliance in the pre poll scene.

In yet another significant development that can expedite the soon-to-be-kickstarted peace process with the government, a TADA court in Guwahati granted bail to ULFA vice chairman Pradeep and central publicity secretary Mithinga Daimary. The jailed ULFA top gun duo are expected to be released from the Guwahati Central jail on Tuesday itself.
Gogoi, who has been languishing in the jail since 1998, had six cases under TADA while he was granted bail in three cases on February 19. The TADA court on Tuesday delivered its final judgment on the remaining three other cases. The government last week informed the court that they have nothing to object if the duo are released on bail.
On the other hand, the court also granted bail to Publicity secretary Mithinga Daimary on Tuesday. It was to be delivered two weeks back but was reserved after public prosecutor Pradeep Gogoi collapsed on the court as the hearing was in progress. Daimary was lodged in Guwahati central since he was captured in Bhutan during the Operation All Clear in 2005. However, the bail was said to be conditional. In a recent development, the authorities have shifted ULFA ideologue Bhimkanta Burahgohain alias Mama to the Guwahati Central Jail from Tezpur to help the leader sit together. On the other hand, Assam Chief Minister recently told reporters that the government had nothing to object in their release if they really wanted to carry forward the process.
