GUWAHATI: Amid heightened speculation over the future of the alliance between the Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) and the Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) in Assam, BPF chief Hagrama Mohilary said that he was busy watching football match on television. Mohilary showed ignorance over the latest developments in the wake of BJP national president JP Nadda’s meeting with the saffron party’s Assam unit top brass in New Delhi on Friday.
“I don’t know anything. I was watching final football match between Russia and America last evening. After that, TV rechagre was over. So, I have to recharge. I have not watched TV today,” said Mohilary on Saturday when he was asked about the breakup between the two parties.
He also stated that the prospect of the pact for 2021 elections would be decided after the Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) elections.
“I would not say anything about 2021. We will decide after BTC elections. It is upto the BJP whether they remain with us or not. We are a small party,” Mohilary added.
