The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) in Assam has returned to the alliance of the ruling BJP before the national election. The regional party AGP had snatched the ties with BJP over the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, after having two months tie with the party.
The two parties had a late night discussion and they decided to form an alliance and said that within a day or two the contours will be decided. The meeting happened between senior BJP leader Ram Madhav and the chief of the regional party.
After the meeting, Mr. Madhav told the reporters, “After discussion, BJP and AGP have decided to work together in the coming parliament election in Assam to defeat Congress.” He wrote, “It was a hectic day of parlays yesterday in the North East.”
The AGP decided to snatch its ties with BJP on January 7, after the center decided to go ahead with Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, which seeks to grant nationality to non-Muslims from Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Pakistan after six years of residence in India. The AGP along with several other parties opposed the Bill.
The Congress has also opposed the Bill and claimed if they come to power they will discard the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill while BJP stated they will bring the bill again in parliament if they return to power.
In Assam, the BJP conquered seven Lok Sabha seats out of 14, in 2014. Assam will see three-phase polling for the upcoming Lok Sabha election scheduled on April 11, 18 and 23.
