Assam: Ripun Bora will be replaced in January says Rupjyoti Kurmi


Guwahati: Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Ripun Bora might soon be removed from the presidential post said Congress Mariani MLA Rupjyoti Kurmi.

Speaking to the media MLA Kurmi said, “The President of APCC will be replaced soon. Ripun Bora will lose the throne in early January. The All India Congress Committee (AICC) is also taking the matter quite seriously and they are in a discussion to replace the APCC president.”

Reacting to the alliance of Congress and AIUDF, Kurmi said, “Because of our tie-up with AIUDF, we could not win the BTC election. It has put us in a bad position. This has led senior Congress leader Ajanta Neog to think about quitting the party. Though she hasn’t left the party yet, if we don’t solve rifts among ourselves we will lose all the core members in this process.  The alliance with AIUDF is causing a stir in the party and we should definitely dissolve the alliance before it’s too late.”
