Narzary quits BPF to join BJP – Times of India

GUWAHATI: Three-time member of Bodoland Territorial Council Bijit Goura Narzary quit Bodoland People’s Front and joined the saffron camp in the presence of state BJP president Ranjeet Kumar Dass on Friday.
Earlier, Biswajit Daimary quit BPF last year and joined BJP. He won the assembly election from Panery constituency on a BJP ticket. Later, he was appointed as speaker of the 126-member house. Following Daimary, former Tamulpur MLA Emmanuel Mushahary and former MLA Balen Mushahary also joined the BJP ahead of the assembly elections.
Dass, while addressing the media, said, “BJP gave a spectacular performance across the 12 seats in the Bodoland Territorial Region comprising Udalguri, Kokrajhar, Chirang and Baksa districts.”
He added that the BJP-led “mitrajot” got nearly nine lakh votes in the BTR while the Congress-led grand alliance was able to collect just 6.51 lakh votes in the assembly elections.
“People have accepted the NDA for sake of development in reality. They have seen the changes as far as development is concerned during the first term of the BJP government in the state. BJP is committed to all-round development of the BTR,” he said.
Dass, meanwhile, informed the media that the state BJP has appointed observers for each of the 14 Lok Sabha constituencies to analyze the results at the booth level. BJP has 28,000 booths across the state.
