    Guwahati: In a major development in the state politics of Assam, Bodoland People’s Front has decided to snap its ties with the Congress-led ‘Mahajot’ alliance.

    The new political development by BPF general secretary Prabin Boro was informed on Monday.

    The official announcement for the same will be made in a few days, he said.

    “We joined the ‘Mahajot’ grand alliance purely for the Assam Assembly Elections. We don’t have any association with them anymore,” Boro told reporters.

    The development comes after the grand alliance’s humiliating defeat in the assembly elections, with the BPF winning only four seats as opposed to 12 seats in 2016.
