Guwahati, March 16, 2019:
Senior Advocate Upamanyu Hazarika and Independent Lok Sabha Candidate from Guwahati Constituency while on his campaign trail, slammed the AGP party and alleged that the AGP is the most shameless party for realigning with the BJP despite having ideological differences with the party over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill. He also said the people of Assam have welcomed his decision to contest as an independent candidate.
During his campaign trail, Upamanyu Hazarika said, “First there is ‘shameless’, extremely Shameless, and then comes the AGP. The regional leaders of AGP and BJP have betrayed us. The slogan of Assam agitation was ‘Ahoi Ah Ulai Ah, Khedoi Khed Bidekhi Khed’, but now our slogan during this election, especially for the indigenous people, should be: ‘Ahoi Ah Ulai Ah, Khedoi Khed Badanok (Sarbananda Sonowal) Khed’. Everyone has betrayed us but I have given written assurance in that I will not betray the people. We will stick to the subject of our interest and we will carry it to the Parliament as well.”
“We have started campaigning for the Lok Sabha elections from Jalukbari constituency as I am contesting as an independent candidate. We have initiated the poll campaign from Bejera, Baihata and North Guwahati where five teams are campaigning. At present, the indigenous people of the state are independent, so I’m contesting as an independent candidate and people have welcomed my decision,” Upamanyu Hazarika added.
