BPF’s Candidates sent to Chhattisgarh amid horse-trading speculations

Guwahati : A total of eight candidates of Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) which was a part of Congress led Grand- Alliance were sent to a resort in Chhattisgarh amid the fear of horse-trading. After AIUDF which sent 18 of their candidates to Rajasthan, BPF is second to have moved candidates to a Congress ruled state. “The candidates are brought to Chhattishgarh and are staying at the Mayfair Resort. They will be here till May 2 when the counting of votes take place,” said by a senior Congress leader.

“BJP are the masters of horse-trading. We have seen many such instances in past where they used every possible way to lure the elected representatives. This time we have taken preventive measures to not let the same things happen and I don’t see any harm in this,” said Assam Congress leader and Lok Sabha MP Pradyut Bordoloi.

While BPF spokesperson Khampa Borgoyary said the party candidates are on a vacation. “Our candidates have gone to Chhattishgarh for a vacation after the long Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) polls followed by Assam assembly election.

It is worth mentioning that BPF was part of ruling BJP-led coalition in Assam and had recently tied with Congress. BPF has a strong hold in Bodoland and has ruled BTC for 17 years. The party is expected to see a keen fight with United People’s Party Liberal (UPPL), which is now heading the council with BJP.
“The fact that Congress is moving its allies to states outside Assam shows that they don’t trust on them. Our party is not bothered about it and we are forming the government with majority,” said BJP spokesperson Subhash Dutta.
