Saikia informed that the party will nominate candidates in the upcoming election and for this purpose.
He further informed that the KMSS will sit for discussion with all the organisations with which it collaborated to continue the movement against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019.
He further informed that the new party will have a new name and that it’s earlier political outfit Gana Mukti Sangram Asom, launched in 2015, would be dissolved soon.
“If Akhil Gogoi comes out from jail by the year-end, then we will project him as our chief ministerial candidate,” Saikia said.
“However, if he fails in the legal battle, we will then chalk out a different strategy,” Saikia added.
