Chief minister Tarun Gogoi launched twin attacks on BJP and the minority-dominated All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF), led by perfume baron Badruddin Ajmal, saying he would not rule out the possibility of the state's biggest opposition party having links with BJP. Gogoi referred to the BJP-PDP alliance in Jammu & Kashmir to substantiate his comment.
"Ajmal and BJP maintain close links. Both BJP and AIUDF are communal parties and we oppose them. Assam is a land of diverse religions and communities. We will not allow our pluralistic society to be destroyed," Gogoi said on Monday. "I will not be surprised if BJP and AIUDF join hands. The former has done it in Jammu & Kashmir. It (BJP) may do it in Assam with AIUDF. Where was BJP's ideology when it joined with PDP?" he asked.
The chief minister said the increasing presence of RSS and Bajrang Dal in the state was alarming.
However, AIUDF however, denied Gogoi's allegation and said it staunchly opposed communalism and communal forces. Party leaders said Gogoi and Congress were misleading people by spreading canards about AIUDF and BJP teaming up.
