In a significant political development in the poll-bound Assam State, The Bodoland Peoples’ Front parted ways from the incumbent BJP and announced it has decided to go for a poll truck of opposition parties-MAHAJATH that has Congress as the leading partner.
The BJP is currently the single largest party in the 126-member Assam house with 60 MLAs, while its allies Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and BPF now have 13 and 11 lawmakers respectively. The ruling coalition also has the support of an Independent MLA.
Speculations for such a development were rife much before the poll dates announcement and one of the BJP State ministers had gone on the public that the alliance with the BPF was only for five years.
