Failed to enter his own party office, former Assam chief minister and senior AGP leader Prafulla Kumar Mahanta on Tuesday asked the party to make its stand clear on Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA).

Mahanta, who came to take part in a meeting of grassroots workers at the AGP headquarters in Guwahati on Tuesday failed to enter the party office, as the office was kept under lock and key and under tight security blanket.

Mahanta and hundreds of grassroots workers of the party later held the meeting at Lakhiram Baruah Sadan in the city.

Party workers of at least 30 districts came to attend the meeting but only to witness the office under lock and key.

“The AGP leadership has adopted double standard over the CAA. Yesterday, I saw some of the leaders expressing opposition to the amended citizenship law on media but next moment they were seen participating in BJP organized rallies,” Mahanta told reporters.

“Some AGP leaders have surrendered to the BJP leadership under a political conspiracy. The BJP leadership have considered that they have won over all the AGP leaders and members,” he said.

Mahanta also termed the move of not allowing him and the grassroots workers to enter the AGP headquarters as undemocratic and said that none of the present AGP leadership has any contribution in building the AGP headquarters.

“We collected donations from people of the state to build this party headquarters. They cannot prevent us from entering the office by locking it,” he added.
