Rupjyoti Kurmi opposes Cong-AIUDF alliance, slams Tarun Gogoi, Ripun Bora


GUWAHATI: Mariani MLA Rupjyoti Kurmi continues his fierce opposition against the pre-poll alliance between the Congress and All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF). Taking a dig at former chief minister Tarun Gogoi and Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Ripun Bora, Kurmi alleged that two leaders have no self-confidence.

Kurmi stated that it was not a unanimous decision to forge an alliance with Badruddin Ajmal-led party.

“After talking to all the core committee members, we have come to know that it was not a unanimous decision. So, how can Tarun Gogoi and Ripun Bora go ahead to form the alliance with AIUDF? I will keep opposing the alliance,” Kurmi said.

The Congress legislator also voiced in favour of embracing an alliance with the proposed political party by the All Assam Students’ Union and other regional forces.

He demanded that Congress should give importance to the representation of the indigenous communities of the state.
