Akhil Gogoi, legislator of Sibsagar and a popular activist has denied any possibility to join All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) terming it “communal” but has given a green signal to his alliance with the Congress party,
“Unofficial discussion with Congress is underway. But never ask me about two parties – AIUDF and BJP. I will never join hands with them,” Gogoi claimed.
Gogoi also challenged AIUDF Chief Badruddin Ajmal on the graph of popularity and his brother Sirajuddin Ajmal in Dhubri. Talking on the sidelines of the ongoing Assam Assembly session, Gogoi said, “Badruddin Ajmal and his brother can stand on one side on the platform and I will stand on the other side in Dhubri. We will see who is more popular among the public.”
“AIUDF is as communal as the BJP. If we want to bid goodbye to BJP then we have to bid AIUDF goodbye first,” Gogoi alleged. “I respect the Muslim community and they love me too. Many criticize me for the same and call me Akhiluddin sometimes as well. But if Ajmal and his kins came forward as a representative of the community then I have a problem with that,” Gogoi opined.
Akhil Gogoi has also urged Assam Jatiya Parishad (AJP), Communist Party of India (Marxist), Communist Party of India (Marxist-Lenin) to come together with Raijor Dal and Congress to throw BJP out of power.
