AGP Tenders public apology

AGP ( Assam Gana Parishad), the main opposition party of Assam, tendered public apology for doing ‘major mistakes’ during their rule in Assam from 1985-1989 and 1996-2001. The apology was made by AGP President Chandra Mohan Patowary in a rally at Sadia, Assam. This rally was part of AGP’s month long ‘mass-contact’ program.

“I as the party president would like to make a public commitment today that if voted to power we shall live up to people’s expectations and work towards overall development of the state,” Patowary said.
The beleaguered AGP, having lost two consecutive assembly elections (2001 and 2006), has been desperately trying to stage a comeback with elections due sometime in March-April next year.

Internal bickering, leadership crisis, and successive electoral defeats have literally crumbled the AGP with the party’s morale hitting an all time low.

Newly elected AGP legislature party leader Prafulla Kumar Mahanta today said he will take the agenda of his party to the people of Assam and would also play an active role on the floor of the House. Unanimously elected as the Asom Gana Parishad Legislature Party leader yesterday, Mahanta told PTI, “my party has reposed faith in me. I shall discharge my duty on the party line. My prime duty will be to take my party’s agenda to the people”.

“I shall function inside the assembly on the advice of my party. I want to make the AGP a strong constructive opposition to the ruling Congress in the House”, Mahanta, a former two time chief minister of the Assam said.

“We will play an active role on the floor of the House against the corruption and misrule of the state government. We will maintain floor coordination to expose the ministers involved in various scams”, the AGPLP leader asserted.

    I feel AGP realised their mistake badly and promise to do better near future.I feel people of Assam give them a last chance for the next general assembly election.

    Thank you for sharing your thought.
    But with P K Mahanta again back at the top, many would be wary about AGP now. Also, it was C M Patowari who apologised, not P K Mahanta.

    AGP should come to power periodically so that Congress can not take people of Assam for granted.
