The lone MP of Bodoland People’s Front (BPF), Biswajit Daimary, on November 11 announced of leaving the party, which is also a part of the BJP-led coalition government in Assam.
Daimary, talking to reporters in Guwahati, said he will be exiting the BPF.
He, however, refrained from formally declaring which party he will be joining now, though he said it will be a national party.
Indications have been rife that Daimary shall be choosing the BJP.
On reasons for leaving the BPF fold, the Rajya Sabha member maintained that the party has failed to take up issues that affect the common man.
“It is busy working only against others, rather than working on its own issues,” Daimary added.
The BPF, which has been led by former militant leader Hagrama Mohilary, has been in power in Bodoland Territorial Council since its formation after a peace treaty in 2001.
The party had also been a part of the Congress governments in the state earlier and is currently with the BJP, which leads a coalition government in the state.
