Earlier, BTC Chief Hagrama Mohilary had exhorted the UPPL party to contest the upcoming elections together in a bid to defeat Lok Sabha MP Naba Kr. Sarania’s party, which will make its debut in the elections next year. Mohilary also promised the position of Rajya Sabha MP to Brahma. Moreover, Hagrama had announced that the AGP, BPF, and BJP parties will contest the 2020 BTAD elections together.
However, UG Brahma had turned down the BTC Chief’s proposal. Speaking on the issue, UG Brahma said, “There is no question of the UPPL merging with the BPF.”
Brahma however, admitted that there was a discussion between the BPF and UPPL but both the parties did not have any discussion relating to the seat-sharing ratio as it is being claimed in the media.
It may be mentioned that Hagrama Mohilary earlier said that the BPF has proposed the merger of parties for the greater benefit of BTAD and discussions are being held with UG Bragma-led UPPL party.
