Dibrugarh, Nov 30: To work out strategies for next year’s Lok Sabha polls, a 2-day conclave of 15 opposition parties of the state got underway in Dibrugarh on Thursday.

Ahead of the crucial meeting, state Congress president Bhupen Kumar Borah said the meeting will discuss about the common minimum programme for next year’s general elections.

Leaders of 15 opposition parties under the banner of United Opposition Forum Assam (UOFA), comprising of the Congress, Assam Jatiya Parishad, Raijor Dal, Jatiya Dal-Asom, Aam Aadmi Party, TMC, NCP, CPI, CPI(M), CPI (ML), RJD, Janata Dal (United), All India Forward Block, All Party Hill Leaders Conference and Shiv Sena (UBT) participated in Thursday’s deliberations for finalizing a common minimum programme for next year’s general elections. The United Opposition Forum Assam was earlier formed in line with Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (I.N.D.I.A).


Speaking to media persons, Bhupen Borah said, “The final outline of the common minimum programme for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls will be finalised in our meeting. The Common Minimum Programme will feature the major issues in Assam, which will also be the major poll agenda.”

AJP president Lurinjyoti Gogoi said, “In Assam, chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma is running a family centric government. The old BJP members are not happy with the functioning of the Himanta Biswa Sarma’s government. Where is the government in Assam, it’s a ‘jungle raj’. No body is happy in BJP right now because the party is functioning under the instruction of Himanta Biswa Sarma.”

The 15-political parties of the state are very positive after the first day of meeting. Before the next year’s Lok Sabha polls, this meeting would provide a platform to the parties to build up strategies against the ruling BJP.
