All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) MLA, Hafiz Rafiqul Islam has urged all opposition legislators to support a candidate from the AIUDF for the Rajya Sabha.
Speaking to media persons, Islam said that every year, the AIUDF has been supporting candidates either from the Congress or those who are independent but this time, they want to field a candidate from the AIUDF.
He added that earlier AIUDF had supported Ranee Narah and also Ajit Bhuyan.
“We were hoping to send a candidate from the AIUDF to the Rajya Sabha so that we can raise our voice more regarding the illegal immigrants in Assam”, he added.
Islam also said that the candidate from the AIUDF will ensure that voice against all immigrants post-1971 is raised in the Rajya Sabha.
He added, “We urge the MLAs from the Congress, BPF and also independent MLAs to vote for any candidate that we may introduce for the Rajya Sabha.”
