Guwahati, Mar 19 (ANI): The Bodoland People's Front (BPF) has made it clear that it would not share seats with the Congress party in the upcoming Bodoland Territorial Council (BTC) elections, which is to be held on April 9.

BPF chief Hagrama Mohilary confirmed the news to media personnel, asserting that his party would contest alone for all the 40-member Council seats.

Mohilary said this step was taken due to the stiff opposition of the party members after Bodoland People's Front finalized an electoral adjustment in eight seats with Congress being the coalition partner.

He, however, said the alliance with the Congress in the state will remained undisturbed, adding that the Congress party can file its own candidates in the fray.

The BPF party-workers had ransacked a number of party offices in Fakiragram, Srirampur, Bijni and other places in Kokrajhar district immediately after the party decided to join hands with the Congress for the upcoming elections. (ANI)
