All the major political parties have geared up ahead of BTC election and started accusing each other. The opposition parties came down heavily on Hagrama Mohilary over the alleged large-scale corruption during the last 15 years, the BPF supremo, too, is trying to put up a brave front, countering the charges and flaunting before the voters the list of developmental activities that have taken place during his reign.
NDA convenor Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma has relentlessly attacked the BPF over corruption, lack of development and deprivation of people of legitimate rights.
Sarma, the star campaigner at BTC election lashed out at Hagrama Mohilary led BPF for not doing anything for the people of the region. He said for the development of BTC region centre have given crores of fund but Mohilary has siphoned off development fund.
He has also been stressing that with the BJP-led governments at the Centre as well as in the State, it would be easier for the BTC administration if the saffron party is given the chance to hold the reins of power.
Mohilary seems to be trying to recover lost ground following the defection of some party heavyweights like Member of Parliament Biswajit Daimary, even as the BPF-BJP alliance is in tatters as far as the BTC election is concerned, making it difficult for the BPF to breathe easy for the first time since coming to power after the formation of the Bodoland Territorial Council.
On the other hand, the UPPL, led by Pramod Boro and with a strong support from the ABSU, is hoping to win the polls with an absolute majority.
