Army chief triggers row over AIUDF

Addressing at a seminar on 'North East Region of India - Bridging Gaps and Securing Borders', Rawat said,''AIUDF (All India United Democratic Front) have grown in a faster time-frame than the BJP grew over the years. When we talk of Jan Sangh with two MPs & where they have reached, AIUDF is moving at a faster pace in the state of Assam.''

Responding to Army chief's statement Aminul Islam, AIUDF MLA said, ''AIUDF is working for the downtrodden. this is why our popularity is growing faster than BJP. We are hopeful that people of Assam irrespective of caste & creed, will accept AIUDF and our party will come to power soon.''
