Guwahati, April 22: During a press conference in Karimganj, Sivasagar MLA and Raijor Dal chief Akhil Gogoi launched a scathing critique against the AIUDF (All India United Democratic Front), suggesting a decline in the party’s political relevance in Assam.

Gogoi confidently predicted losses for AIUDF leader Badruddin Ajmal in both the Dhubri and Karimganj constituencies, labeling them as Ajmal’s “political graveyard” in the upcoming elections.

Citing a perceived shift in sentiment within Assam’s Muslim community, Gogoi claimed that they had distanced themselves from AIUDF, viewing Ajmal as aligned with the BJP-RSS alliance. He forecasted the 2024 Lok Sabha elections as the end of Ajmal’s political career, particularly noting a readiness in Barak Valley to bid farewell to him.

Addressing BJP leader Sarbananda Sonowal’s candidacy in the LS Polls from Dibrugarh, Gogoi suggested that any potential loss for Sonowal would be attributed to the influence of the current Chief Minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma, highlighting power dynamics within the BJP.

Expressing confidence in Congress candidate Hafiz Rashid Choudhary’s electoral prospects in the Karimganj constituency, Gogoi attributed this optimism to what he perceived as a rejection of AIUDF by the electorate.

In summary, Gogoi’s remarks painted a picture of political upheaval in Assam, with predictions of significant losses for AIUDF and potential repercussions for key political figures, amid shifting alliances and voter sentiments.
